spt - childhood memories


the next challenge is going to send you back in time. i'm giving you an extra week, and a little freedom from the "self-portrait" guidelines...

just a reminder...

for tuesday, september 11, get out those family photo albums and really take a look at your old school portraits. what is your favorite childhood memory of going back to school? were those good times, or stressful times for the younger you? were you decked out in new clothes? did your mom give your hair a trim the night before school? did they still use chalk in the classroom then? did you have to walk uphill through the snow both ways?!?

i hope you will take the time to find those old photos! call your mom and ask her to send them along to you. ask your neighbor if you can borrow their scanner. take a few moments to get back in touch with your inner child!

This challenge is motivating me to do some much needed archival photo organizing.

ooh- this will be tough. i don't know anyone with a scanner! i may have to resort to photographing my photos. :)

Great idea and so many memories - I don't have a picture of myself I think I'll be forced to take a look in my husband's childhood photo album! :)

Hi Lelly,

Just wanted to let you know that I linked to your SPT today on my blog. I hope to post something on your next assignment. My mom has all my old photos and she just moved, so it is hard for me to get a hold of them.

Glad the SPT are back.

Had to dismantle my photo album to do this. Not a good thing, but fun to share.
