throwback thursday: from the backseat

For today's Throwback Thursday I'm sharing a layout I created back in 2009 about a funny conversation I heard my girls having from the backseat while I was driving. This layout was published in the March/April 2010 issue of Scrapbook, Etc. magazine (RIP) and is an oldie but goodie.


This was back in my 8 1/2 x 11 days digital/hybrid days. I printed the journaling boxes and black flower stamp on the kraft background before adding my paper, photos, and embellishments. Then I printed the journaling strips using reverse printing (creating a black-filled text box and changing the font color to white, then printing on white paper). The papers are from a Canadian-based company that is sadly no longer in business--Black River Designs.

Can't believe how much more grown up my girls are now...

Love this idea! Have a few overheard conversations from the backseat of grandma's car! I really like the hybrid idea. Very nice layout.

Adorable! I like how you printed the journaling text the reverse way...it makes it stand out more and it is a LO about the conversation. The photobooth type pictures are a great support to the story.
