"Old school" scrapbooking

The Design Team challenge at Let's Scrap at the moment is to scrapbook an every day moment, "old school" style.
So just for fun, I thought I'd show you another one of my early layouts:

We're talking no patterned paper, double- and tripe-matting, punches, eyelets, and computer-generated journalling!

Now, here's the page I made this week:

It took me a little while to decide what colours to use with my photo, until I remembered this lovely Easter-inspired mood board from Jay Gee's Nook:

 It won't be a surprise to my regular readers that I added an extra spin on this challenge by not only going old-school style, but literally using old school supplies.  To say that nothing on this page is less than 4 years old would in most cases be an understatement!

I tried to go for the no patterned paper, but I just couldn't do it!  I did use punches, eyelets and (sort-of )
triple matting though.  One of the challenge rules stipulated no electronics, so I couldn't use the computer (or, sigh, the Silhouette), so I dug out some old stickers, letter tiles and stamps.

Now, to the other part of the challenge, the everyday photo.

This was one of those rare times that I took a photo just because I scrapbook, documenting what I was doing at 11am on the 11th of the 11th, 2011.  An everyday event (or it should be, sorry Hamish!) made special by occurring at a unique time in history.
