Family Ties

Happy Thursday!!  I am having so much fun creating with the dies from the Lifestyle Crafts Possibilities release.  Today I'm using the Nesting Frame 4 set.   I used 4 of the dies that come in this set, the largest 2 as a background for my photo and 2 of the smaller ones for my journaling block.

While going through my Mom's things after she passed ten years ago, I found a small photo album that belonged to her mother.  The album contained photos of family members and friends that dated back to the early 1900's.  Unfortunately I don't know who a lot of the people in the photos are, but I love looking at them as they give me a glimpse into my grandmother's life.  The little album is falling apart and some of the photos have faded, but I decided to preserve that small piece of my past in an 8 x 8 scrapbook and pass it on to my son, who never got a chance to meet his great grandmother.  The photo in today's layout is of my grandmother when she was a young woman, it was taken sometime in the late 1920's.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day!
