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.
I made this LO for my little brother, we have different biological fathers and as I am really active in family history, he asked me to find out a little about where he came from. This is his 4th Great Grandfather. Family History is my great love, followed closely by crafting, so when I find an opportunity to mingle the two I am in my own special kind of heaven. I
am entering this into the Heritage challenge over at Cooking with Cricut. I used paper from the DCVW stacks Tattered Time and Tradewinds, the ship and font cuts came from the Heritage cart, and the tree was from Create-a-critter, the apples came from Doodlecharms, and the frame around the picture came from Mini-Monograms. I loved this challenge, it made me smile from start to finish :)
