We are celebrating on our Ustream channel June 7th, Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. with this look back in time. I found some photos of my 7th birthday party and thought how great it would be to make an album that showed them off. So I came up with this idea which works out great for Father's Day by the way.
Can't you just smell the bowling shoe disinfectant?
I remember running over to pick out the perfect bowling ball and how I used to be afraid my fingers would get stuck in the holes, or how about the holes being too big and you drop it as you throw it? Back then, our bowling alley didn't have the blow up bumpers like they do now for kids, you had to know how to throw it or be good at counting gutter balls.
I got a good laugh seeing myself in my beloved patchwork overalls. I had all my childhood friends around me, and funny enough I remember all their names even though I haven't seen them since we moved from the farm when I was starting 9th grade.
I used the Hobby Lobby Glasses, Staches and Ties Paper Collection. I thought the bowling paper was just the cutest. I will also have PDF files available the day of our stream with the pattern and some cute retro bowling cards and a personal bowling score sheet.
I hope you will join us for another stroll down Memory Lane as we head off to the Bowl-O-Rama.
I hope you can spare some time Saturday to spend with us.
