Re-living the 80s

Breaking into my February Counterfeit Kit Challenge "Record" kit made me smile. I had a lot to say for the layout I created to the LOAD prompt "Home Sweet Home" and I knew that my products would be great with its focus on story. This lined background paper from BasicGrey is perfect for this and now I need to run out and get another half dozen sheets.

I used a complete 6x6 sheet from my super cute Crate Paper pad that Helen sent me in our Christmas embellie exchange and it was perfect to mirror the pretty flowered wall paper that I used to have in my teenage bedroom which turned. After that, I didn't think it needed much as this was one was all about the journalling. Just a bit about what made up my room and why it was so cool!

I was in love with this room once I had completely grunged it up with all those posters on the walls. My friends and I shared a lot of teenage angst and a whole lot of fun in there and it was nice to look back and remember.

When's the last time you walked down memory lane while looking through photos from all those years ago? I can totally recommend it. I'm loving making these layouts this month.

  3. Ah yes, days spent mooning in my bedroom (or my friends' rooms) with nothing to do (no TV, mobile, Gameboy, etc) listening to cassettes on tape players - thank goodness those days are long gone LOL!
    Super page - as crowded with important stuff as your walls were!

  7. Oh, I was so envious of your room - I had to share. And your bed, remembering it was bigger. And I seem to remember more clothes on the end of your bed than in your wardrobe... And the angst, there was a lot of that
