Scrap Your Story - Polaroids

I just have to come out and say it, I love the look of polaroids but always forget to use them in my scrappy arsenal. When Christy said we'd be using them for this week's challenge at Scrap Your Story, well I got pretty excited!

For your polaroid, it can come from anywhere you like, be it an actual nostalgic polaroid, one you hand cut, an embellishment, or like mine that I used my die cutting machine to cut and frame my photo.

My page today has some fun stuff going on, including the oldest paper in my stash. Check out that faux crocodile, wowzers! I don't know why I bought it because it's spent the last four years hanging around in my stash, I've nearly thrown it away half a dozen times. I think it was waiting for this moment.

There's also a few reclaimed items - the washer type thing around one of the brads, two bottle caps, and a penny that the boys wanted to run through one of those souvenir penny machines. 

As for other products:
Papers are from BasicGrey PB&J, MME Lost and Found, and Authentique Loyal
Brads are Paper Studios and Teresa Collins On the Edge
Washi is Love My Tapes
Stickers are 3Bugs Blast off!
Ink is Colorbox Black Pigment
Playing Games Embossing folder from Tim Holtz 
Flocking, tags, tab are stash

I'm entering this one in a couple of challenges as well:
