1973 CJ Home!

Yes its back home having travelled the length and breadth of the Country and its full of interesting facts and photos from the year I was born, 1973.
A link to my original post with all the photos of my entries etc can be found HERE.

First stop was with Louise in Durham, who chose the Top 5 chart.

Next was Linda who went with mobile phones, I bet you didn't know that in 1973 the first mobile phone call was made.

Jill decided on some of the headlines that were prominent during that year.

Off it went up to Scotland for Angela to complete her entry on Births and Deaths.

Onwards to Lynn who showed me what my parents might have been watching.

Back down South again for Caz to complete her entry on cars.

Nottingham now for Megs to complete her layout on the dreaded fashion of the decade that style completely forgot.

And finally back to Rachael in the South who finished off with a fantastic quiz.

Big thanks to all of you who took part and looked after my journal.
I've also been busy doing a few CJ entries myself, the first called Tiny Teddy. This little lavendar bear has been having her own adventures and we've all had to photograph her so it can be turned into a little story for the owner's young daughter. Teddy arrived at my house just in time for Easter, lucky bear!

Next was one called Milk & Sugar about quaint little coffee shops in your area, sadly Rugeley isn't blessed with any so I blew caution to the wind and decided on Central Perk in New York, I mean whats an aeroplane trip amongst friends looking for a good cuppa coffee lol.

I have also managed to scrap a photograph that I've been pulling faces over for months now. Its a Birthday layout and everyone knows my hatred for doing these, anyway it didn't turn out too badly.

Supplies: Bazzill cardstock, Cosmo Cricket patterned papers, chipboard and die cuts, Hero Arts, Heidi Swapp and Autumn Leaves rubber stamps and KaiserCraft bling.
