the Wham Years

Ok Anne so maybe I cheated but I had to share this LO for your challenge at another Freakin Scrappy Challenge- I promise I'll do another with a later photo as well ( I made this LO last year so not really for this challenge) Sorry :(

the challenge this time at AFSC is to scrap your school years- using a photo of you and then some form of memorabilia-  the music from the day or some such 

the actual list is
 scrap your school days – your own school days incorporating three of: a photo of you back in the day, or a momento from those years , perhaps: a song title, lyrics or album cover from that era, your favourite school subject, or a page from one of your texts, diaries or notebooks , a scan or your yearbook – whatever is representative of your school days

So anyway my lo- I bought the Wham LP at a charity shop with the specific purpose of making a LO_ I have no record player any longer

 I used the cover as the basis of my paper- didn't mind that it had a sticker on with the photo of the band and then used the colours of the album for my inspiration- the photo was from my first year at Secondary school ( age 11) and I remember this was the second attempt at the photo- I was recalled to have a second go after the negatives came back! The first must have been dreadful!

I also used some button badges- I remember having a white cotton rucksack liberally covered in badges like these
