So Yesterday- October ScrapFreak Kit

TITLE: Ticket to Ride
Journaling: a carefree summer day at bay beach is what childhood is all about. you couldn't stop smiling and saying woohoo and weeeee 08/10

Design Notes: I thought the paper was perfect for this theme. I challenged myself to use the patterned paper as the background. Something I don't do every often. I am surprised how this turned out- but I like it. I included some actual tickets from the amusement park as well

TITLE: These Women
Journaling: No one can make you feel love like a mom, calling hot dogs wieners without cracking a smile, I am a good person, somehow the important things always get done, always remember dates and send cards in the mail, being a lady means sometime you have to wear a skirt, say it out loud and you'll believe it, when in doubt call mom

Design Notes: I used a bunch of Crate Paper journaling spots and then printed out little memories and sayings that remind me of my mom and Grandma. I've had this photo on my pile for a long time. The vintage touches are perfect for a page that remembers my Grandma.

TITLE: Happy Girl
Journaling: You are simply a smiley, happy baby. It makes my heart melt.

Design Notes: I did handstitching around the edges in pink to draw that color out a little more.

TITLE: Carousel

Journaling: Nothing says childhood like the merry-go-round at Bay Beach. And when tickets are 25cents you can ride over and over. You had the hardest time deciding which one to ride. This was the only ride you wanted to ride twice. The favorite. 08/10
Design Notes: I kept going back and forth with the chipboard alphabet as they came straight out of the package. After I gave myself a nice bruise on my head from beating it against the wall I decided to paint them. I always forget how a 80cent bottle of paint can do wonders. I used the Pioneer Womens Photoshop actions to make photos have a vintage look.
