In a lot of my layouts, I get comments about the memorabilia. I have my great grandfather's hunting license, some ration coupons from WWII, my great grandmother's paycheck stubs from th 1950's. I collect antique paper things too, so I scan a lot of those things and use them as the elemetns in my heritage layouts. That might be a net idea, personal antique elements.
What I think is the most neat, and if we have old photos, a lot of them have it, is flipping it over and scanning the handwriting on the back. The actual handwriting of my relatives from back when is very personal and very precious. So how about a challenge showing the backs of the photos?
