… do the math … 1958 is the title of my layout. My birth year …
Our latest challenge at another Freaking scrappy challenge … is to “scrap our place and year of birth incorporating at least two things that were popular in culture that year as an embellishment (song title, historical event, movie, hero or heroine) – you can include baby photos instead of photos of your birthplace if you wish. Please include a link to another scrapbooking challenge website in your blog posting for this. If you are shy to scrap your year of birth, then why not try some hidden journalling????”
Where did the years go??? I asked my mother the year I turned 50 how it felt to have a 50 year old child. She responded: “Wierd”. I don’t feel 53 today. I don’t look like my grandmother did at 53. How the heck can I be 53?????
Here is the layout I made for the challenge using American Crafts paper, some Prima flowers and embellishments that I printed from the internet:

Mom and Dad were in the Royal Canadian Air Force and stationed at Cold Lake Alberta when they met and married. My twin brother and I soon ended our mother’s military career, as women had to leave the military when they were expecting. We were the first twins born at the station in Cold Lake, and our family photo was taken and placed in the base newspaper to commemorate the event.
The challenge was fun to play. Why don’t you come over to the blog and play along with us????
