throwback thursday

Every now and then I like to post older scrapbook pages. Some are pages I want to preserve that I never photographed and posted online, and others I already have photographed and posted but it was almost 10 years ago at this point, so it’s fun to revisit them. Here’s one I created in 2006. I was really drawn to the Simple philosophy (still am to some degree) and I loved basing layout designs on advertisements from magazines. This one was based on a simple ad, and I really love it–even today.

Back in 2006 my albums were 8 1/2 x 11 (basically 3 ring binders) and I scanned them instead of photographing them. So the image itself isn’t the best, but you still get the idea. Not a single embellishment on this page–just photos and neutral papers with some fun textures to them.
And yes, these are really items I found in the laundry that had been in my kids’ pockets. They all loved to collect little bits from outside–rocks, acorns, shells, metal scraps. Fun stuff.

  1. Great TBT. I love the simple style, too.

    The strangest thing I ever had go through the was was a small pair of pliers. I'm not sure how I missed those in my husband's pocket, but they came out very clean. 🙂
