Cherished memories

I was asked by Bree to complete a project for the August class at Scrapfreak( the prompt being items and the project being a pocket mini or LO, the focus was you had to tell the story (this was the most important part)....

So being given a prompt of items I went searching as a most things I hoard have
a lot of heartfelt meaning I didn't really know where to start but finally picked toys and cherished things from my childhood...

I used the Dear Lizzy fabric paper , old vintage book paper and BG Basics line for teh whole album adding some sweet vintage, Lil Red Rocket, Maya mist, October afternoon Thrift Shop stickers and a couple of otehr little touches to complete my mini...

I still have some toys and things from my childhood -some are at Mums and the boys place with them including my Cabbage Patch dolls and some are here and they play with them here I will be keeping them to hand onto my grandkids(hopefully)one day also - I think it's nice having things that connect you to your past

I made the tags using dotted swiss and misting them and repeated the tag and page design throught my mini so it all flows :)

I really loved doing this project and mini's are not usually my thing nor is sewing(although I would like to learn more) - I will show some more pages through the month :)

So what things do you remember from your childhood and have you scrapped them or do you still have them?
