Challenge 24 - Ephemera!

Can you believe that the summer's two-thirds of the way through? It's more astonishing to me that this summer's been busier than the school year - with camps, out door activities and recently back-to-school shopping. I've got quite a collection of ticket stubs, receipts, and other ephemera already - and we haven't even gone on our vacation yet!

My challenge to you is to grab some of those things you've been hanging on to from this summer, last summer, or whenever -- as long as it's ephemera -- and use it on a layout.

Link your layout to this thread by Sunday, August 10 to be considered for a RAK. And I've got a fun RAK full of embellishments, flowers and vintage things, including an Oceanside adornment package from Scraps of Time.

Here's what the team did:

I found I had a variety of things -- just from one week. Ticket stubs, clothing tags and a photo strip from one of the mall picture kiosks that my son dragged me into.


Becky used airline ticket stubs on her layout of her child's trip to NYC.

Jen used tags from her daughter's clothing. The brightly colored tags make a great accent.

oh this is great because I just finished this mini book about my trip to CHA this year, and I used pretty much exclusively ephemera from the tripp.

Fun challenge! I like to use ephemera on my pages, I just sometimes run out of space for it. This is a page with the ultrasound images from my 20 week ultrasound. There is also the hospital bracelet on the page.

I made this one last week... about an old job I used to have, and used actual things from the dry cleaners on it.

Hi! That weekend I was at a concert very crazy "Granota Rock" (so called by the number of frogs that exists in the village). And I used as a tag, the entry. Behind, I could write my memories of that night. Thanks for the challenge.

I have been wanted to do your challenges for long time, and so glad I finally did it! I had the page already planned out before I got started on it this morning. It is on my blog...

I don't have TONS of this stuff, but I am sure a brochure counts, right?

Thanks!!
