Family Artifacts…

Aug 19, 2008

I was given a Masters Challenge and thought sometimes it’s not about the people or the moment I like to scrap about but the item. So here is my challenge…. “Get out your trim, buttons, chipboard and patterned paper and create a layout about a childhood toy or family artifact that still brings you joy. Post your responses to the creativity challenge in the forum at

The hobby horse shown in this layout was put through some very vigorous rides. My brother Richard would rock back and forth as far as the springs would allow and go as fast as he could. Sometimes this action would lift the metal frame off the floor which scared me. He rode this hobby horse like a true cowboy on a mission. I on the other hand had a fear of falling off and would gently rock back and forth like a true little lady.

    How adorable. Too many years and too many moves, I don’t think I have a single photo of me with a toy. Welcome back-we missed you!

    SOOOO loving all of the orange! I am finding that this is the color I am wanting to use more and more of. LOVE your focus on that adorable horse too.

    I had one of those, well my brother did, but me being a tomboy means I did too. Love the colors you used and that brown ball trim is too die for.
