Did you grow up in the 1970's?  Me too. 
I've got some great memories and I thought I'd create a few digital layouts that document those memories. 

I created a double page spread for the toys that I remember playing with.  

That got me thinking about Saturday morning cartoons. So I had to create a 2 page layout for those memories too. 

When I print these out, I'll make these two just 8x8 size prints so that I can drop them onto 12x12 card stock with a couple of diecuts that I have of Scooby Doo and some journaling. Scooby Doo was my favorite cartoon character because we had Great Danes dogs. I also loved The Jetsons too because they had a GD too.

Of course creating pages about cartoons got me thinking about the TV shows that were must sees. That lead me to this two page layout.

I hope you've had fun strolling down memory lane with me. Next up is Amanda.

Here's the entire blog line up in case you get lost along the way.


  1. OMG! Your layouts brought back so many memories! My kids had the toys, and we loved the Saturday morning cartoons, and MASH was my fave!! Thanks for sharing!!

  2. what a stroll! you are jogging my 70's memories! I had that tree house! I want it back!! I must admit, I STILL have my spirograph, just moved it from the game pile to my craft room. My son is a teen and we are getting rid of a bunch of his childhood toys which include a lightbright! I was very glad some of those good old toys are still around, like etch a sketch, too! I must admit one of guilty pleasures is collecting old "little people", I have many homes and buildings including a couple of Sesame Street ones! They are not expensive, in fact cheaper than the new version. Thanks for sharing and taking me back to my childhood!

    Oh, I cried during the last episode of MASH!
