BACK IN THE DAY WEEK - Day 3

Good morning fellow scrappers! I hope all is well in blog land. This week is school vacation for our kids and I am on vacation too!! Such a nice week!

I am working on painters tray, this is my first one so I am learning as I go. This is a picture of the entire tray. As you see the middle square is empty. Still trying to figure out what to put there. Maybe the word Legacy, or Past?


The first square is my Mother, my Grandfather and My Great Grandfather.




The second square is my Grandfather in Brussels During WWI.






The 3rd square is my Grandmother at the World Fair in New York in 1932!


Most of my papers came from Graphic 45. They have such awesome, awesome vintage stuff. Of course some of the embellishments came from Tim Holtz; the clock and the clip. Some embellishments came from Graphic 45. I bought all of these a local scrapbooking store.

  1. This tray is phenominal.. I've seen it up close and personal and you would think it was pulled out of an old trunk in the attic..it really has that true vintage feel. between the clips..the cloth...the colors..it really is fantastic. Nice work Lau!

  7. My Gosh, what a fantastic project. You did such a beautiful job and the photos you added are just perfect. What ever you decide to add to the middle box, it will look so pretty with those flourishes. I have seen these boxes before and have shyed away from them in fear of not knowing how to fill them. You have really inspired me to purchase one and give it a go!

  10. This is AMAZING!! I'm blown away!! I LOVE it!! What incredible photos and memories!! WOW!! I've never heard of a painter's tray and it looks like you are already an expert with your first one!!
    I really like legacy for a title - or you could use "our/my history", "days of old" - or even "Back in the day"!!
