As you can tell, this is a scrapbook page layout featuring a pic of my dad playing crusaders as a kid. I love this photo...his huge grin, all the great costumes, etc. I'm not sure if this was something they just did for fun or if it was for school or some other sort of group project. Dad died a couple of years ago and left behind several big lockboxes of old photos. No one else even wanted them! I couldn't believe it. So I took them home and took up scrapbooking. :)
The chipboard pieces are stamped using stamps from Wing It and Carte Postale.

Lots of people do scrapbook pages for the challenges. In fact, I think there is a special sketch challenge just for scrapbooking. This is a great page! You are lucky to have such photos of your Dad! Love the coloring you did with your pencils too!!

Thanks, Carol Ann! I appreciate your sweet comments. I am lucky to have all these pics. When dad died I couldn't believe no one wanted them! Well, their loss, my gain, right? It amazes me how people just toss away memories like that. All my grandparents' pics were in there too, including ones as far back as the early 1800's, maybe earlier. I haven't even scratched the surface.
