A milestone birthday

This is not a regular scrap, meaning I didn't use scrapbook material, but I used only pictures from my dad when he was a child and when he was in his mid twenties. He's going to be 70 next month, and we are planning a huge party for him. This is the invitation I made. I was inspired by the pulp fiction movie posters and comics that were very popular in the forties/fifties of last century.

Apart from the pictures I used a picture of some candles grouped on a table for the very background, and mixed it with a bokeh texture and some grunge overlays, to have that grainy look.

This is awesome. I love the movie poster look. It's very creative. Our girls are having a party with a movie theme. I may have to do something like this for the invitation. Thanks for the inspiration!

This is Marvelous! I love that pulp look! What a great -- and creative -- idea. It helps, I think, that your Dad is as handsome as a movie star, too. :D

Ditto all of the above. What fun you must have had putting this together - I love the layered photos you used. My DH turns 70 this fall - I may need to scraplift your idea!
