2nd post of the day - don't forget to check out my earlier post!!
I've been scrap booking some more of my "vintage" photo find . . . .
First page I did (actually yesterday but I had promised to run it past hubby before "publishing") was actually of his Uncle and his M.B.E. using the "official" photograph taken at the palace. Hubby wouldn't let me include the full sized or "brooch" sized medal (yes I KNOW brooch isn't a very manly description but . . . .) so I had to make do with taking a photo of them. I also found a piece in the local paper about his Uncle. Hubby absolutely refused to allow me to include the page I did of their family Christmas in 1961 (but he was such a sweet little boy).
He was, however, quite happy for me to include the sporting page using photos from 1928, 1929 and 1930 when his father was a very keen sportsman. The reason for the large panel of striped paper is because his dad was such a thorough record keeper that there are photocopies in the pocket (see the manilla pull out tab) with the team members names for the 1928-29 team, the 1929-1939 team and the 1930-1931 team and I didn't want to waste that information although I was only able to die cut hubby's dad from the team photos not used in my actual layout. So here they are peeps, I hope you enjoy looking as much as I enjoyed making them.
