The Tale of Dad's Shorts

Challenge 5 for the A Trip Down Memory Lane cybercrop was called Olympic Podium.  The challenge required you to use ONE sheet of cardstock, TWO sheets of patterned paper and THREE photographs, you were also allowed to add in a few embellishments and use inks, paints, alphabets.

Rummaging through my photographs I found three that have been waiting since 2009 to be commited to a layout and have the story behind them told.  These shorts that my Dad wears to sleep in when we are on narrowboat holidays have become a bit of a family joke as my Mum keeps trying to get rid of them and everytime she thinks she has been successful they turn up again in his luggage on a boat trip.  I just had to get some photographs of Dad in them as yet again after she thought she had successfully lost them, they made it to the holiday!!!
