A Walk Down Memory Lane

I went to a crop last weekend and worked mostly on pictures from my college days. I think sometimes I'll never finish this project! It's fun, but I enjoy doing more current things too! I'm almost through sophomore year now. This one really took me back. Look at the maxi dress! How about that - they've been coming out with maxi dresses again this past summer! This one is from 1974! These are pictures of my friend, Jay Wilcox, and me singing in the Sunken Garden at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg. We used to sing in several of the local churches. Sorry the pictures are a little dark. Perhaps I should have scanned them before putting them in the layout, but I used the original pictures I had from the event.

This paper was from a collection I got on HSN - 3 Birds. I didn't know what in the world I would ever do with this yellow and black paper, but when I started going through my college pictures, this just seemed to fit, and the swirl cut from another piece in the same collection has a 70's feel to it.

New Swap Stuff

First let me apologize for not posting much lately. We've been absolutely swamped at work. We're putting in a new phone system and everyone has been working long hours. It's probably going to be like this for another month and a half! Yikes! Flu bugs stay away!

I have a couple of things to show you. This month our card swap is a Fall theme, and so is a swap that is being called "Pick 'n' Mix" where you do 3 items consisting of an ATC, a "twinchie" or a tag, or any combination. Here are my fall things!
