Heritage Challenge: Wheels!

Good morning from Mollie aka readstoomuch.  It is time for a new Heritage Challenge here on the Designer Digitals blog . . . and I thought that “wheels” might be a fun topic for this month.  Do you remember a particular car from your past?  One you remember your dad or grandfather driving?  Maybe you remember a bicycle, tricycle or a toy car . . . or even a motorcycle, for heaven’s sake!  If you are one of the lucky ones with a great stash of old photos you may have a photo of someone in your family with their favorite set of wheels.  If not, the internet is full of photographs of old motor cars, bikes, trikes and motorcycles!  So dig into that stash or into the net and find a story in your memory that you would love to save for the next generation.  Scrapbooking and Designer Digitals is all about saving memories!

I am beginning with Myra . . . and this fabulous photo of her dad!  This was many years before Myra was born and I know that she cherishes this cool photo and memory of her dad on his Harley.  Myra used these products for her gem of a layout:  Harrison Kit, My Windows Album No 01: Travel & US State Capitols Brushes and Stamps.

20120806_Myra_DadHarleyIf you loved Myra’s Harley layout, you going to love LeAnne’s [digishoes] layout & story all about her Papa Paul’s yellow 1956 Oldsmobile convertible!  Take a look at the fabulous photographs . . . and smile at the sweet and funny story that LeAnne wrote.  Check out these wonderful products from the DD Store:  Dictionary Blendables: Traveler No. 01, Charmed Words No. 01, Sun Porch Kit, Fabulous Fifties Paper Pack, Blendable Journalers No. 01, Blendable Journalers No. 02, Cardstock Tabs No. 02, Lock and Key, Photo Clusters No. 25, Clipped Stacks No. 04, Beach House Memories Mini Kit, Oiselet Bleu Kit, Today Alphabet, Route 66 Quick Kit 12 x 12 Template Album, and Alison Kit.

20120806_LeAnne_PapasCar02My [readstoomuch] layout is a bit more recent that those from Myra & LeAnne . . . and is one of my favorite photographs of our third son in 1974 riding his favorite little green tractor while pulling our big red petal car.  I have such fond memories of our four children playing with these riding toys and thought this would be a good photograph for the “wheels” challenge.  The products I used are:  Clean Stitched Borders: Brown, Dictionary Blendables: Everyday No. 01, Just Linens Paper Pack No. 01,LessonBook Clusters (coming soon), Little Enamel Cars, Vintage Photo Frames No. 04: Curled & Flat,Watery Photo Masks No. 01, and Watery Spots No. 05 (coming soon).
