The Retweetables: Halloween Edition (Part Two)

 This was me. A clown. Not one of my favorite costumes as a child, but to tell the truth, I chose this photo since the quality was better than the other ones I browsed through this morning. My mom created a HUGE scrapbook for me when I turned 30 and then filled a large photo album with all the other photos that couldn't fit into the scrapbook. So as I was looking through the album, I debated between the photos of me as a punk rocker, a witch with a green face and a few others. I like the photo I chose because it brings back memories of my blue tennis shoes with velcro, the big orange rocking chair that sat atop our red carpeting and the brick fireplace that I ran into right before I started kindergarten (and ended up with a horribly bruised ear). At least the carpet brings out my face paint and the red polka dots on my costume.

Since I'm on the subject of face paint and costumes, check out this week's #Retweetable Halloween tweeters:

Note: The above layout was created for Day 14 of Layout A Day (LOAD) and scraplifted from the January/February 2007 issue of Simple Scrapbooks (our challenge was to use something old). You can view my LOAD photostream on Flickr.

  1. The photo does have great colors! I like how you put the year on the page you made. It was so nice of your mother to put together a scrapbook for you. It's fun to look back at what our lives were like when we were kids!

  2. The photo is adorable and I love your layout! That orange rocker brings back some childhood memories, oh my!

  3. Thanks! The great thing about Layout A Day is that I don't always know what I'm going to scrapbook. I never thought I would use this photo on a scrapbook page, but when I was working on this post, I wanted to use a Halloween photo. I had pretty much scrapped all the ones of my girls so I decided to flip through the photo album my mom gave me. Since our LOAD challenge that day was to use something old, using this photo on a layout just worked out perfectly.
