The Story of - Ruby Rock-It

Yay! It's Friday!! For me the weekend starts on Friday, as that's one of my days off!! This will be a very busy weekend though, as we've got 2 birthdays to celebrate: my husband's and my eldest son's! Looking forward to that!

Today I've got a Ruby Rock-It layout I want to share with you. I've used the wonderful Heritage collection to scrap this photo of my mom, taken at the roller-skating ring in The Hague in the sixties.

When my mother was in her teens she spent most of her time on this roller-skating ring where she also met my father. Because this place was so important to my mum I decided I had to scrap one of her photos from there and the Ruby Rock-It Heritage collection was just perfect for this!

Don't you just love the wood veneer silhouette? I've sprayed it with some gold mist and really like the result.

And those die-cuts of the feather and the banners are just fabulous too!

Here's a list of Ruby Rock-It Bella! Fundamentals products I used:
Heritage paper collection
Heritage Die-Cut Pack
Heritage Wood Veneer
Heritage Cardstock Stickers

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today and I hope I've given you a little bit of inspiration to scrap those old photos you've got lying around!
