123 Challenge..August...

I do believe this is maybe the 3rd week I have played along at the 123 challenge blog...
So as soon as I saw the August challenge I was in...
I loved the vintage theme.




I dithered with some photos for awhile.... I had some lovely old photos from my Grandmas I thought I would use.... but I just couldn't get them to come together.

Then Briony and I were looking at this old Glomesh bag that was in amongst my Grandmas things. Tucked inside was a little collection of dockets....slips of paper and tickets...all little snapshots of a time and place in her life. 
 Briony commented I should keep them for scrapbooking.
Thats when the idea of actually scrapping the bag and its contents came to mind.

I have to say....I really love this layout now...not because its a ground breaking layout by any means..
....but just because its personal...and meaningful.
