The King lives on....or *Oldies but Goldies*







Made this LO for a challenge on the scrapbooking section of DC. We had to use 3 patterned papers, 2 plain papers, 3 of something, ribbons or wool and a song title - GRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! I used coordinating papers from WRMK Silver lining collection, photos of Elvis, 3 brackets and enough patterned and plain papers to need sunglasses! The song text is on the back of the LO. I made an overlay with "Return to Sender" stamps on overhead transparency foil. The photos have been laminated to give them more depth. In spite of the *conditions* not being quite to my liking, I enjoyed making it. I listened to Elvis songs for nearly 2 hours, danced through my living room, and felt like a teenie again.Then I saw myself in the mirror, nearly said "Hello, Gran!" and decided to make a strong coffee and sit down for an hour. Oldies but goldies!
