That 70’s Show attempted to portray the lives of teenagers to a semi-modern audience. My early years occurred during the time period noted for butterfly colors, bell bottoms pants, bright and loud patterns, and disco but without the Ashton Kutcher. The photos from that era do not reflect the trends. Many photos have a reddish-orange or green cast to them which makes coordinating scrapbook color schemes a CHAL-LENGE!
Since the 70s, people have done a poor job of caring for their original photos. In fact, many of us chopped up our photos to make collages to decorate art projects, our bedrooms, and in scrapbooks. These photos can not be restored as most of the negatives that produced the original photos are also lost to time. Additionally, many photos were not well cared for, making restorative work very difficult and cost prohibitive. So what can you do?

Despite these challenges, I forged ahead to create a scrapbook that reflected my story which is part of my family history. My children will come to treasure this keepsake that I created, or at least I’ll enjoy the memories I was able to curate! Take a look back at some of the layouts that are in this project.

So what are you waiting for? If I can make a heritage scrapbook about myself, you can do it. All of these pages were created using Photoshop Elements and then printed at Mixbook.com (These are not affiliate links, though I might look into that in the future!)
