Macy Monday

 to see the back story on macy monday go HERE
these pictures were the best quality i've worked with so far in macy monday - some of the pictures have really been a challenge because they were all cut up and some in such bad repair the backing of the photo was completely gone.. however i'm very glad to say these beauties were in perfect repair! so creating this layout was tons of fun! just designed a layout composition that i thought brought out the colors and style of the photos themselves - and i don't mean to pat myself on the back (ok, maybe just a little pat) but does this scream retro or what! i ♥adore these colors together with brown and black really all that pops out at you is little macy in her red hoodie!! and i always wondered macy why you love hoodies so much - i bet they remind you of days like this growing up with such great parents! you're a lucky girl! 

the paper is DCWV - (one of my favorites) so wish they had a design team - i would try out! ah well, that's enough babbling - what do you think about this super retro layout?



  2. Absolutely does scream retro! Those colours were really hip in northern Europe around 1968-1972, I still have a thing about brown jersey pants, makes me shudder just thinking of it he he. Love that finger with the tag dangling from a twine. Cute strips of paper, especially the one with hearts. xxx
