Sunday Flashbacks!

IMG_2511

Happy Sunday!

Welcome to Sunday Flashbacks! I changed it from Throwback Sundays since that term is already familiar at TGF.

Anyway, here, we get to share old projects from the past that were never showcased before. Either because it was before we started blogging or it just never had the chance to be in the spotlight. Hope you join me on Sundays!

What I love about this lay-out were the bright, strong colors, soft shadows, and feminine accessories. The same pic repeated four times made it look artsy, I thought. Plus, with the fabric and lines, well this l.o. is one of my faves of all times.

When I was in High School, I was one of the yearbook editors and our theme then was oxymoron - the book title was "Organized Chaos." Each section also had oxymorons.

"Timid, Yet Bold" isn't actually an oxymoron, it's not two opposing words that form a phrase when put together. But you get the jist? I feel like that's my personality (in '06 when I made this l.o., and now). I'm shy at first but once you get to know me, I can be quite loud and assertive :).

What could be bad about these Sunday Flashback projects is the fact that I never wrote down what supplies I used. So I'm sorry that I'm not able to list them down. I could tell you though that I upcycled two of the embellies here. One was a friendship bracelet (horizontal, near bottom) that my good friend PM gave me. And the other is that bracelet that spelled out my name -- one of my BFFs, M, had given it to me for my birthday.

Ok, now it's your turn! Hope you join in & link your older creations every Sunday. And everyone here, pls visit each other's blogs / projects. I'm working on a blog button soon!
