My Very First Scrapbook

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Oct 23, 2008 in Scrapbooks

When I did an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer for my Scrapbooking Ministry about a year ago, I mentioned that I created my very first scrapbook based on the movie “Grease” when I was 10 years old.

Well…guess what my mother brought over this weekend?  That very same scrapbook! 


In 1978, Topps marketed “Grease”  trading cards to girls – probably to compete with boys’ baseball and football cards.  I collected them all and put them into this little scrapbook…


In the scrapbook, I also included magazine photos of John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, ads for the movie…I even saved a wrapper and a piece of the bubblegum that was inside with the cards (30 year old piece of gum, anyone?)…


I was obsessed with this movie!  I memorized every line and knew every song by heart.  Of course, being only 10 years old, a lot of the jokes went right over my head…but even then, I just loved Sandy as a ‘bad girl’!
