Family Tree Project Part Four

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with the next page of my Family Tree project. In case you havent seen my previous posts basically my grandparents left me lots of family photos going back to the Victorian era so I have been making a scrapbook of them as an heirloom and to get to know my family-its so much fun and very rewarding! I used Basic grey kit as the vintage shabby chic look really compliments the old photos I have to work with :-)
These photos are trips to the beach-I used the basic layout sketch from Lesley from The Cupboard trilogy lead by example challenge-just a different subject! :-)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Challenges 4 Everybody: Anything Goes
Paperminutes: Snapshot
Creative Creations: Anything Goes
Frilly and Funkie: Follow your Muse
Cards Galore Scrapbook Challenge: Any Theme Goes
Live and Love Crafts: Something Old (Photos)

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-)
