My Postage Stamp Collection

so after a month of vacation, i got to scrap a Dare again. this week was Aja’s turn, here is what she came up with:

What do you collect?

This week I want to hear all about your collections! Do you collect books? Dolls? Photographs? What about your children or spouse? Do they have a fun collection?

Dare Flair

Since this is about collections, I want to see lots of photos–at least five.
Use products from at least five different designers–dig into your collection of scrapping supplies!
Be creative with at least one of your photos–extract it, crop it in a different way, etc.
Include the word “collection/collect” somewhere on the page.

at first, i didn’t know what to scrap about, but then it hit me, i used to collect postage stamps as a teenager. leaving for college put some sort of stop to it. it was the time email was the way to go for communication instead of handwritten letters. not that i didn’t mind, cause my mother’s cursive longhand writing asked for an expert to decipher LOL

i took a plunge into the closet, pulled out my stamp albums and envelopes full of loose stamps and started to take photographs for this dare.
