Sara 9 years Old

I've found so many treasures going through my Daddy's papers and such. I had forgotten all about this pic until I found that he had saved it all these years - and I know it was when I was 9 years old because that's the year I got my ears pierced! He left me so many wonderful memories that he had hidden away all of these years. No earrings in yet though - the doctor made us wear translucent "catgut" in them until they healed!!!!

Ah, the good old days! So much simpler now to have one's ears pierced.

Your layout is very pretty. The colours are beautiful and I like the green scrolling along the edges. How kind of your father to leave you beautiful memories. It seems your relationship with your father was special and it is a blessing that you are able to scrap these memories.

Awww, you were such a cutie! What a sweet find. I like how you blended the photo into the swirly background. I can't imagine wearing "catgut" in my ears! I never knew that's how they used to do it. Yes, so much easier to have your ears pierced now!

Oh Sara, such a beautiful LO. I love the way you have blended your photo with the pretty patterned paper. I like the color of your photo - wonder if you did that or it was the original sepia. Either way, it works splendidly with the page. You are a beautiful woman so it is no surprise that you were a beautiful girl - such a sweet expression. Love it!!!
