I thought it would be fun to spend this week doing a series of these. I have a few done for other decades already but I wanted to fill in the blanks and put them all together to use as a scrapbooking resources. So welcome to Retro Week!
I already posted the 1940's and 1950's in this post (thanks to my Mom!) so I'm starting today off with the 1960's.
