These are all so wonderful, can't wait to get started on mine.
I love everyones pages since I have been missing for a while I did not do this one. but will try for the next any ways who can remember 1942 or i don't even have a clue.
This challenge was so fun...I bought a birthday chronicle to help me with this challenge and learned so much...The white box is hard to read so here is what it says...This came on the chronicle...
The president of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, that today be a day of national celebration, heralding the birth of Michelle McCoy on Wed. January 12. 1972. The White House sent a bouquet of carnations, the flower of the month of January, to her family.
You can get one yourself by going here.
I dont find my page as interesting as everyone elses but I did enjoy doing the research and I LOVE looking at all of the other pages.
In my comments on the page I took a jab at my parents who were teenagers at the time, my intention is not to affend anyone but I think my mom will get a kick out of it-it is a family joke now that we are grown up.
Here is my try. I don't think it is that great. I ordered one like Michelle, but it hasn't come through yet. (Thanks for the tip Michelle)
I used Fiona's newspaper for the background and the shapes. I used shapes from Autistic Wonder, Julie, Blue Velvet and SBM. I used a frame from Knzus kit Soft Brown Shispers.
The telegram is from my dad to my grandmother letting her know that I was born.
For some reason the paper behind the little girl by my picuture lost it's shape after I brought it into SBM. It was a round shape that you couldn't see. I just used it for a background because she is transparent, but it is showing up as square. Oh Well!!!!
Great page Sue! How cool that you have that telegram! I love those kinds of things! :)
Here is my first feeble attempt. I'm an SBM virgin :) The newspaper came from Fiona, the poloroid frame I made myself in psp. I must confess I have not gathered many freebies yet, so I may have bent the rules a bit and used things that came in the original download of SBM. My cd has not arrived yet, that's how new I am at this. Critiques welcome!
