Scrapbook Challenge: Days gone by

"Auld Lang Syne" (Scots pronunciation: [ˈɔːld lɑŋˈsəin]: note "s" rather than "z")[1] is a Scottish poem written by Robert Burns in 1788[2] and set to the tune of a traditional folk song (Roud # 6294). It is well known in many English-speaking (and other) countries and is often sung to celebrate the start of the New Year at the stroke of midnight. By extension, its use has also become common at funerals, graduations, and as a farewell or ending to other occasions.
The song's Scots title may be translated into English literally as "old long since", or more idiomatically, "long long ago"[3] or "days gone by". The phrase "Auld Lang Syne" is also used in similar poems by Robert Ayton (1570–1638), Allan Ramsay (1686–1757), and James Watson (1711) as well as older folk songs predating Burns.[4] Matthew Fitt uses the phrase "In the days of auld lang syne" as the equivalent of "Once upon a time..." in his retelling of fairy tales in the Scots language.

When you sing this song in the new year, who do you think of? Do you have friends you have lost touch with in days gone by? It's the new year and time to get back in touch with those friends from our past. Today's layout challenge is to create a layout in tribute to someone from your past, better yet, make a card to send to that person. Dont forget to link it here, so everyone can see!

Question for my readers

Are the clip marks photos working? When I log onto my blog, I cannot see the photos from cllip marks (these would be the featured blog photos...) Do you see the photos or just empty boxes?
