Lots of 2008 Memorabilia

I love to save memorabilia and use it on my scrapbook layouts. As I was organizing the remaining photos and stories from 2008, I came across a flyer, menu, and gift card for the Any Any Restaurant. This restaurant was invented by Pun'kin Natashia during her summer visit and she spent most of the afternoon creating these pieces to give Uncle Robbie when he got home from work. I decided to use the 8 1/2 x 11 flyer as the base of my layout. I journaled along the top of the page, adhered some of the smaller pieces to it . . .

. . . and added a see through pocket to the page to slip in the menu.

I also found a brochure and newspaper clipping from an exhibit we enjoyed on our trip to Austin. I already have a layout with journaling about our trip, so I simply wanted to showcase these pieces of memorabilia.

For this next layout about our day at the Texas State Fair, I included the front of the day's schedule book and two tickets that I had saved.

I have a few more layouts to share soon, but I have now completed our 2008 chronological scrapbooks and am currently working my way through the weekly inspiration emails from the Library of Memories Community and some older Glitter Girl videos. What have you been working on this week?


  1. The Any Any restaurant sounds wonderful! I would love to have given it a try :)

  2. How fun is this!!! Love it. All of these layouts are great! I need to be sure that I'm including memorabilia more in my pages!

  3. I do so love to see memorabilia on pages, You have created a lovely page here for the restaurant story!

  4. You make me want to go through all my old memorabilia and scrap it now :)

  5. Oh you've done a wonderful job with your memorabilia. From that grin, I take it that JR approves too.

  6. I'm finally catching up after our trip. I brought back quite a bit of memorabilia, but I never seem to know quite what to do with it. I'm determined to get it added to my Project Life pages this month. Thanks for the inspiration. I loved the Any, Any Restaurant--what fun!


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
