Remember when - Scrap Africa Sketch 38

Hi there and welcome.
Today, I'm sharing a sketch challenge layout for Scrap Africa
I must confess to struggling to find the right papers
and discarded my first two attempts.
But when I worked with these Kaiser papers, it all came together quickly.
to go to the Scrap Africa site
The photo is of my husband's family in 1952
I followed the sketch almost exactly.
The flowers and metal clock are from Prima.
The chipboard title is by Scrapmatts.
I hope you will give it a try too and be eligible for some scrappy prizes.
