Oh, how awesome this layout it! Just love it and I hope someday my granddaughter will be as thrilled as you with the scrapbook albums and clothes I've made and sent her.

Thank you so much for sharing.

Project - Themed Projects : Cut from the Same Cloth

<p>Not long ago my grandparents surprised me with a CD filled with old family photos.&nbsp; Some went back generations, some showed the houses and streets where my family had lived and others brought the holidays to life with tinsel trees and decorations we'd call retro these days.&nbsp; The photos of my mum and aunt made me smile as they spent their childhood in clothes made just for them by my grandmother – often in matching outfits.&nbsp; I hadn't seen many – if any – of these pictures before but a few of these outfits were handed down to me years later and I had my own share of handmade outfits from Grandma too.&nbsp; I don't sew nearly as much (or as well!) as my gran but it certainly seems that this sort of crafty approach to day-to-day life runs in the family, so it's time this story went into my scrapbook.</p>
<p>I wanted a little something distressed to go with the look of the faded photos but nothing over-the-top deconstructed, so I used the edge of my scissors to rough up the edges of a few elements.&nbsp;</p>
<p>The small words in the title don't photograph perfectly so you'll have to trust me that the metallic green letters on green cardstock shimmers so it is legible and quite pretty!&nbsp; I wrote the small words in white pen first then used the rub-ons right over the top of my lettering.&nbsp; The natural spacing of my writing and the rub-on letters is totally different, so I just spread out the rub-on letters to match my spacing rather than joining up the letters as I would normally do if they were on their own.</p>
