Boys in Trouble

I had a lot of fun with this page.  I found some old photos at my parents house and asked my Dad about them.  He told me the funniest story about when he was a kid.  There was a new car give-away in town and a group of mischievous boys (including himself) took a bunch of raffle tickets and threw them all over the road.  The police found out and made the sweep up the mess.

This is the time to sit down with your loved ones and get those stories documented. Otherwise, that may remain untold forever...

I wanted the title and journaling to feel like an old newspaper article. I went to the internet to find old newspapers and advertising as inspiration. I used a simple brush script front with specific words highlighted in red. Of course I needed to include "tickets" to help tell the story.


  1. I like the ticket border it does give a good link to the story.

  2. Thanks for visiting my site! I love connecting with new people.
