Today's page is unashamedly, unapologetically nostalgic. Three 1970's kids, snapped by their Dad, on a day when the sun shone warm and the beach stretched out before them.
I pulled the photo out of my pile of old pictures when Get It Scrapped asked for a page using badges
Badges? It had to be the 70's! When all my friends seemed to be collecting those little woven souvenirs, bringing them back from holiday, saving up for the new styles from the one haberdashers in town. I had a dream of a denim hat, covered in patches I'd sewn on myself; and though I never achieved that, I smile when I look back and realise my crafty plans, of a day, haven't changed too much at all...
....since the times when:
- the biggest decision on a sunny day was between getting out in the fresh air, taking a wander, gathering up treasures, chatting, and storing it all up in my memory - or staying indoors and making something.
- the biggest dilemma was whether to cut the paper dolls out of my Bunty comic and enjoy them - or save my magazine and keep it intact.
- the biggest deal breaker was the choice of glue for my kitchen roll and cereal packet construction
- the biggest no brainer was MAKING a Fathers Day card instead of buying one.
Everything changes, nothing changes. All those dads still deserve cards and a good day tomorrow...
...and this post, which was supposed to be about scrapbooking with badges, has turned into something else entirely. So I'll direct you to Get It Scrapped's Ideas For Scrapbook Page Storytelling With Badges and wish you a great weekend!
