Heritage Scrapbooking: The Book of Me

After completing scrapbooks featuring my mother, father, grandpa and grandma, I thought it would be time to turn my attention to myself. This project is broken up and taking a long time, so I do apologize if my release schedule is slow. I still have kiddos to raise!

My first scrapbook features myself when I was born in the 70s. The photos I have have the standard weird color photo processing of the time, which makes scrapbooking a challenge. As such, I wanted to pick a feminine yet photo complimentary color palette. Unfortunately, a recent computer crash lost the actual color palette inspiration I used. I did find something very similar, though not exact.

These colors are fairly typical of the 1970s but won’t necessarily clash with my photos. There’s enough wiggle room to cover the variety of photo topics I’ll encounter. I look forward to sharing with you this new phase of my heritage scrapbooking journey… the book about me.
