A Day Out In London 1973

I was reminded of this photo when I say the designs on these Sassafras Indie Girl papers a few years ago, and the other day I found the photo. One of the papers is called 'eclectic elegance' which sums up the mixture of clothing we wore!
The hidden journalling reads "Mum took us to London for the day to meet up with her friend (my Godmother) Barbara. Barbara took this photo, catching us unaware. Unlike the boy to the right who looks like a statue, but must be posing for a photo himself! I'm in the background taking a photo of Horseguard's Parade - I'm wearing a purple skirt and a white top with red and blue anchors printed all over it (what a combination - but I remember them being favourites). Sylvia (my sister) is in a pink floral smock with rainbow sling back platform shoes, and my brother, Robert is wearing a blue toweling smiley face T-shirt and very short shorts! I remember these clothes and the occasion well."

I made this in response to the current Page Maps Sketch Challenge - Sweet Shoppe digi sketch contest.

I used Sassafras products from the Indie Girl collection (left over from a class I attended two years ago) The papers are Eclectic Elegance and Mellow, also Indie Flag Banner cardstock stickers and cardstock pink glitter alpha stickers (for the date).
The title is Paper Treats white alphabet epoxy stickes from Around the Block.
In addition I used:
Prima brick wall stamp
Burnt Sienna Promarker for journalling
Rich Cocoa Memento Ink Pad
ColorBox chalk ink
Craftwork Cards Card Candi - Autumn Blossom
EK Success retro daisy punches
Decorative Pins
3D foam pads

Pleased to have rescued the photo from one of the old 1970's albums and preserved what appears to be the only photo we seem to have of that day out!

Thanks for looking.

  1. Oh Lynn, just how lovely is this! I really love how your papers are the perfect match for the photos. The little flags on pins look great and such lovely journalling too xx

  2. Very co-ordinated its fab love all the old photos. I also love the journalling bit since it opens up and you can give so much detail with out fussing up the page

  3. What a great memory - love the hidden journalling too x
