There are 3 parts of family memory keeping that are part of the crafting/scrapbooking world. First is Living History, what is happening now, the trip to the zoo, last years family reunion etc. Second, memories from days gone by, our ancestors, where they came from and how their experiences helped to shape us into who we are today, and finally staying in touch with the family that we have now, but don't see as often. I would like to spend a little time each week on all 3 of these.
Page 5 The borders around the Photos were done with the Mini Monograms cartridge and the rose is from Walk in my Garden. The Sentiment was a set of stickers that I found in my "stuff", so who knows where they originally came from :) I inked everything in dark brown, and the journaling was printed in outline form on my computer and I colored it with gel pens.
Page 6, The cloud image, and the sentiment were both cut from Nifty Fifties, and the border for the photo was from Mini Monograms, I cut it twice at the same size, once in ivory and once in Navy, then I offset the border so that the back color showed through. I inked everything, and stitched both the border on the picture and the clouds. The journaling was done on my computer, printed the outline of the font and colored in with gel pens. And of course the house was from the Handy Man cartridge cut at 10 1/4".
