My Family Tree Scrapbook-Part One

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well! Here I am with a project close to my heart. My grandparents on this side of the family both passed away a few years ago and we inherited the family photos so I decided to scan and improve the photos (some of them are hundreds of years old and worse for wear) and make a scrapbook of my family tree using copies of the originals and rescuing the old photos so we have improved quality copies kept on an external hard drive. Luckily my grandmother went through her photo albums before she passed away and wrote who was in each photo which makes this process so much easier! The idea is to have a family scrapbook to share with my close and extended family now and to pass down the generations-its my way to show how thankful I am for those I love, even those who are no longer here.
I used a kit I bought secondhand from someone so I am not sure what make it is but its perfect for this project-pretty but with a real vintage look :-)
