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.
This is a 2 page 8 1/2x11 LO of my grandmother as a child, these are the only pictures that we have of her from when she was born until 1947, I never had the privilege of knowing her, she passed away when when she was only 37, so this year as I am turning 37 myself I am attempting to make a scrapbook/story of her life to give to my mother.
I am entering this LO into the getting scrappy challenge at Amanda's Crafts and More, the challenge was a LO "anything goes".
The paper I used is from Old World Stack by DCWV and the rub-ons are from Basic Grey and K&Company, the embossing was from Provo Craft.
