March challenge #2 at Counterfeit Kits

March 12th: Media Studies
Use Print Media (newspapers, magazines, junk mail, catalogues) as the starting point for a layout. Colours, words, layout, even the story. could all be a source of inspiration.
I was reading a "Home Beautiful" magazine at a local coffee shop, when I spotted this.

Now there's 2 colours I haven't used in a long time!
I'm harking back to an old layout for similar inspiration
I'm using 2 photos that aren't good quality (sorry about the sun's glare!),but the colour scheme is accurate.
It is with a friend's baby back in the early 1980s.
And yes that is me.

The scanner cut it off, but there are 2 strips of velvet ribbon along the bottom.
I've added a chevron strip above the photos so I qualify for Challenge Yourself.
