The olden days...

Challenge for February 27th to March 4th (or so, we've been pretty flexible on deadlines)

Okay, here's one, if you're game... this week go on a scavenger hunt through your scrapbooking space and use a tool from "the olden days" that you bought when you first started scrapbooking and, at the time, just had to have. For me this would be a punch or Fisker's scissors, or a gold pen, a die-cut... hehehe the possibilities are endless!

Bonus points if you use more than one and manage to keep your layout from looking dated! :)

Marlene: This is my first attempt at " a challenge scrapbooking" by e-mail. I found the project sorta easy, as I'm still using the older tools, and templates. I find the journalising the hardest. Since these photos were taken, I filled in comments on left page, about Leona's 5th Birthday, and coloured in her name in gift box, oh and put grey crayon on balloon strings. Acid free crayons, by the way.

Carrie: I used the first idea in a Fast Formulas book ( 2000), a precut triangle, my original corner rounder and my first pen set. I have been cleaning out a file cabinet and came across my list of prices for items to make a costume so that I could figure out a price for the costume. Anyway, a piece of paper (journalling) from 1988 that didn't make it to the garbage.

Laura: I can't remember when I bought this tool, a book of templates that I absolutely had to have. Fast forward a few years... And I pulled it out of my template box, brand new. I really needed it badly, huh? :)

Alex's Layout: His "old" tools are all my old stickers that I never used, or only used a part of the strip. He also gets my photo leftovers, the ones I printed that didn't make it into my layouts. For now, he's perfectly happy with that.
