My Folks, 1978

Good morning and Happy Tuesday!  Just think, many of us will be celebrating Valentine's Day in one short week - didn't we just celebrate New Year's Day a couple of days ago?  My how time flies!

Today let's look at another wonderful layout using Silver Serenade.  This one's by The 51 Mom, and it's called My Folks, 1978:

Judith has matched the colors in her photo and the color in her main background paper perfectly, and the way she's extended the right-hand photo over into the gray gives it a nice continuity that really leads my eye into the pictures.  The rest of her paper stack is perfect for the wonderful cluster she has built and for the messy mats behind the photos. Her cluster is gorgeous, oh how I wish I had that clustering gene, LOL!  Isn't it great, too, to see her wonderful vintage photos?  I know for me, in photos like this, I enjoy looking not only at the faces, but remembering the clothing, the furniture and knick-knacks around the room - sometimes those are more sentimental than even the pictures, I wonder if Judith can relate?

You can get Silver Serenade, along with its extra embossed papers, here:

So check out your pictures, see if you have room for a beautiful Silver Serenade!

Thanks, Sherry! Surprisingly enough, I didn't even tint the photos to match - I used them exactly as scanned from my dad's slides. Yup - they are THAT old LOL! Love this kit, Silvia!
