It's a Work in Progress

Yesterday our local scrapbook store had a free Beginner's Scrapbooking class so I decided to take in the action.  It's been many, many years since I last did any scrap booking and I wanted to revisit the basics.  It was an excellent class.  Janet was informative, articulate and so very helpful.  It was a small class and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I have long been wanting to get the photos I took on my very first vacation ever into a scrapbook.  The photos are old and mostly black and white.  Hmm?  Does that tell you anything about me?  To give you just a bit of back story, my grandmother took me on a month long vacation that started in Iowa, of course since that's where we lived, trailed west into numerous states and north into Canada and culminated in California to visit her brother and his family.  Then, we meandered on back towards Iowa.  It was fantastic and something that I have never forgotten.  I was only 16 at the time and had never been out of the state.  Grandma sparked my interest in so many things with that first taste of the world.

At the class, we were able to select three colors to work with and coordinated with the colors in our photos.  As you can see, I chose brown, cream and blue. 

I can't wait to get the rest the photos all done.  It's a work in progress and a labor of love.  Oh, and just so you know and in case you are curious, this is what Old Faithful looked like back in 1966!
