Below is a page of my mom’s old photo’s that I have done for my family tree book.  The youngest photo of her was taken when she was three years old.  The school photo was taken when she was around nine years old.  The dress that she has on in the school photo was made by my grandma, my mom’s mother.  The oldest photo of my mom was made when she was sixteen years old right before she married my dad.  When my mom was little she called her mama, mama and also called her grandma mama.  So someone told her to call her real mama, Mother and her grandma, mama.  So that’s what she always called them Mother and mama until she got older and then it was Mother and Grandma.  For scrapping the page I used:

“Inherit Blessing” kit by Creative Victorian Designs.

Fonts used are Estrangelo Edessa and French Script.


My latest lo made from “Old Schooldays” by Attic Treasures

This is my latest lo that I made using Attic Treasures Old Schooldays kit.  I love all the elements in this kit and the papers.  I’m not very good at making these lo’s yet but was satisfied with this one.  I made my first frame ever, on Photo Shop 7.0 that my son gave me, for this lo from Anneli’s chalk board that was in her Old Schooldays kit. I hope this was acceptable.

My Genealogy Book

I wanted this blog as a diary for my scrapbooking but am so scatter brained that I can’t remember to post everything like I wanted to. Maybe one day I will get caught up. I still have more blinkies that I’ve collected to put on here and am still not happy with my site. I start working on it and then remember something else I was suppose to do or get disgusted because I can’t do something right so I go to something else.

I have finally got done the first three pages of my genealogy book that I have been wanting to do for so long. I’m just not good at putting these layouts together and want them to be something that I am absolutely happy with before I use them in my book. So these three pages I am very happy with. I will share two of them here but one of them has to much personal info on it so I choose not to download it on my blog. But I think it turned out great.

This is the first page of my Dad’s tribute. It was done with a Scrapbook kit called “My Dad” by Ashalee Wall of Ashaleeandsweet.com.

This is the second page of Dad’s tribute. It was done by the same Scrapbook kit “My Dad” by Ashalee Wall of Ashaleeandsweet.com but I added a frame, ribbon and flowers from the DAC Collab Team and staples by Lynn Griffin.

Easter Layout

This is a layout I done using Creative Victorian Designs Easter Lovely background and Inherit Blessings frame, Boolands Granddad Overlay, Laura’s DigiWorld Background, Carena’s wordart. The photo is of my mom, sister and myself on Easter Sunday in 1969. I was five years old and just got my first pair of pantyhose and my first itty bitty heels. lol
