It was when girls wore pedal pushers and sailor collars on their blouses, talked on a rotary dial phone and played 45 rpm records.
Funny thing about being a teenage scrapbooker...it was the beginning of becoming a 'Collector'. Who knew it would lead to CollectInTexas Gal.
As I look at my 'Teenage Scrapbook', I notice that it cost a whoppin' 49 cents. I haven't looked at it in awhile, so I thought I'd share some of the pages with you of "Old School Scrapbooking" before getting to my "21st Century Scrapbook".
What a Hoot, huh?
"Cookie Lend me your comb"....Do you remember Edd Byrnes from 77 Sunset Strip?
I don't know what happened to the photo that went with that quip,
but it was of Tony...he wore his hair just like 'Kookie' and was always combing it.
Sorry bout that drawing, Tony!
OMGosh....it started back then...saving Birthday Cards!
I sure don't remember receiving this card, and I've no clue who Shirley is,
but I bet I 'Get It' more NOW than I did THEN...
."In the interest of brevity"!
My brother probably didn't get it either....he's showin' off his Champion Fine Wool Lamb.
I'm moving right along with my Great Grandmothers DoOver Scrapbook!
This is the Cover Page for the beginning of her Marley Family History.
The pages to follow will feature the original photos from the 'Old Album'.
I'm tying the Old Album to the New Album with photos I've staged of the Old Photos and Album.
Like the bottom photo on the Marley Cover page.
I'm printing the photos on card stock paper rather than photo paper for a more aged and mat finish. Original photos are being mounted by taking advantage of decorative cuts in the background paper like you see with the leaf shapes. I use a stencil cutting knife. I also use clear photo corners on original photos so they can be removed easily.
Here's one of my favorite 'Staged Photos'. 'In The Interest of Brevity', I'll tell you about it in my next 'Scrapbookin' Post' where I'll also answer.....
So, until then....Here's to Longevity!!!!
