I finally finished this layout. I had 2 photographs of my sister and her husband. One that was taken in the 70s, the other just at CNY this year.

Decided on a split layout but just couldn't get a grasp of what I should do after laying out the retro top. After some suggestions from H, finally finished. I didn't want to add anymore to the retro part because the polka dot papers and the bellbottom fonts were already quite loud. {Maybe next time when I get more feel about this I'll add something}.

Actually...I don't know why I used the green cardstock as background though...

I tell my friends this is a funny layout. I don't know why. But I guess I managed to get the feel of what I wanted, although I'm not sure it's a layout that appeals to the public eye :) But I'm not bothered about it! LOL!


Used Dymo clear labels for the verse {above}

Printed these fonts {BellBottom.Laser} cos I wanted the 70s feel.

Used gel pens to draw small hearts on these chipboard alphabet stickers.
