1973 CJ

Well I've finished one of the CJs I'm taking part in, this one is for my team over on UKS that I'm also hosting with an open theme and mine being the year I was born. It hasn't started its little journey yet and I was already shocked to remember there were only 3 analogue TV channels as I sat glancing at my 32" widescreen HD ready TV and my Sky+ HD box lol.
I wanted to keep the papers in keeping with the 70's era and there was only one manufacturer I could think of...Sassafras Lass and yep I still hate the patterned paper, its so awful its actually perfect!
My front cover



Introduction and Rules pages


My entry, no comments...I know what you lot are like


This is an acetate page I decided to do and then wished I hadn't started it. The clouds give little snippets of events like the who the Prime Minister and President was, who died and who was born etc, front and back.



and finally my sign in page, there are two of these but once you've seen one you've seen them all.


So on the 1st August it will be sent on its way and hopefully I get a little book back containing lots of nice history pages about the year I was born, a constant reminder of how things evolve over time and to highlight that my 2nd CJ is going to be 21st Century namely 2009/2010 so I can compare then and now.
