Week 3 of ADSR

I can't believe that week 3 is now complete. My wonderful partner Nancy, keeps me on my toes and has taken the second challenge this week so only one for me. My single layout for this week at Digitals made layout of the day which was a wonderful surprise. It is the "Memories of a Friendship" layout.

Promise of a New Land

Yes here is another heritage layout! I really do love this style of scrapbooking and it gives me the opportunity to scan in some old photos etc and combine these with some kits. If you have not checked it out Susan has some wonderful heritage kits at RRD. (Link on right)

I love scrapbooking but there are some layouts that I just love above others. This is one of my favourites and uses some papers from Raspberry Road that I adore. This is my Grandma as a young girl. Isn't she beautiful?

The journalling reads:
This photo was taken of my Grandma around 1920 when she was in her late teens. It is still 7 years before she marries my Grandad. She is the third of 4 daughters. Her only brother had been killed on the battlefields of France 2 years earlier. Her parents had separated. What dreams lie behind this face?

Heritage Layouts

I have always loved heritage layouts and especially the photos that people seem to find in trunks etc. Recently I was very lucky to obtain some old photos from my family and can now join in!! Here are a couple of recent layouts.

This layout is a scan of a wedding photo of my great grandparents in 1898. I just love the clothing and hats!

And this layout is a photo of my grandparents taken soon after their marriage. I love that this photo has just captured a fragment of an everyday moment.
