Vintage Football

We don't have many pictures of my husband as a child.  So I was happy when he gave me a couple of pictures of him in football uniform when he played the Pop Warner league in Hawaii many, many moons ago.  The original photo was badly damaged but was repaired and these are the result.  I just think they are great...he's so young and although he's never been heavy he is certainly very skinny here!  I also love the old car behind him...what is that...a Corvair?  I'll have to remember to ask him.

Lucky guy...he grew up on Maui.

I used Echo Park's This and That by Lori Whitlock...I thought these colors were just perfect.  This layout was QAS...Quick and Simple.  I haven't journaled yet and I may still add some buttons but this isn't the kind of layout where you'd add bling or lots of ribbon.  A football player just wouldn't have that!

Here it is:

Tomorrow I head back to Atlanta after my month vacation at the beach.  It's been a great month but I'm looking forward to getting back home and seeing the kids and grandkids!

Happy Crafting!


  1. Wonderful restoration memory scrapbook layout. I liked Maui over Oahu. I remember a photo I showed you that I photographed from helicopter tour and you told me that it was where your husband went to school.
