Bom Challenge #1

Over at the babes and I are working on our BOMs this year - for those that don't know - that's Book Of Me. I've done a few pages in my album over the past couple of years, but this year I'm planning on doing more. So Rhonda has put forward the challenge of a BOM page a month - and this month it's "What was happening in the world the day/year you were born".

Please forgive the shoddy photo - I had to take it indoors due to the wind and rain:
I researched the info and then printed each piece so I could trim them into small blocks. The paper and hearts were all drawn free hand, then doodled. The ribbon is stitched to the layout along with the buttons. The photo in this layout actually a hybrid - I have altered it slightly as it had faded and yellowed quite a bit, and I only have the original in my baby album and am yet to print it. The journalling under the photo is CK Ali font.

Here is a close up view of the ribbon, buttons and flowers - you can also see some little Jolee's bottles on there and some bling.

It's quite interesting to find out all about the movies, computer games and people of 1978 - considering I was oblivious to it all!
