All About You- Childhood Photos

The theme for this month’s All About You Challenge is childhood photos. I hope you will join me in scrapping a photo from your childhood. Don’t have a photo? You can do a page with a childhood memory!


First up, Esther’s beach photo from 1963 put a huge smile on my face! I especially love all her details in the journaling on this lovely layout!

Esther used:

Next, Shannon documented the story of her and her sister having hip dysplasia and what that meant for them. I love her photos and her great storytelling on her fabulous page!

Shannon used:

Next, Julie scrapped about cutting down a Christmas tree with her Dad and brother. Her story and the details are irresistible…the dog, the car, the scraggly tree, etc.! Love it all!

Julie used:

Finally, my page features some photos from my first Christmas. I used a Layer Works template and my page came together so quickly! I treasure these photos as I don’t have many from my childhood.

I used the following on my page:

Taped Together Overlays 02

I can’t wait to see your pages with your childhood photos and/or stories! Remember to post your page in the All About You Challenge gallery as well as in the December Challenges sign-in thread in the forum.

Happy scrapping! – Addie
