Puttin' On the (Easter) Ritz

You think yellow and grey are a popular color combination these days? Well, here's proof that everything old is indeed new again! Check out this Easter finery from my childhood:


I used my Studio Calico February kit and some of the new My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart to create this page. The small sayings from Technique Tuesday's Favorite Memories stamp set make  a nice border separating photos, title and journaling from the grid at the bottom.

These photos brought back memories and reminded me how Easter traditions have changed over the years. You can see more Easter layouts and cards this week over at Practical Scrappers. Have you scrapped any Easter photos from your childhood?

  2. Proper little Shirley Temple - that outfit is so smart. My Great Aunt would have said that you look a "Right little bobby dazzler". I was born in '64 and I don't have any colour photos of me before school. Odd because we do have some colour prints from my parents wedding in 1960 - although the official photos were still B&W at that time.
