Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) As Christmas is over I am starting to pick up the projects I had postponed to get my Christmas crafting done! I have blogged a couple of pages of this project before but here is the story-I inherited photos of my family going back from Victorian era onwards and I decided it would be really nice to create a posh scrapbook with a record of my family with details of who is who for a family heirloom. This has to be one of the most rewarding and fun projects I have ever started-its lovely to be able to see the family resemblance and to get to 'know' the family I never met.
I used a Basic Grey kit for this project-I chose this because it has a wonderfully distressed but pretty quality which suits this sort of scrapbook. I have scanned all my family photos and have rescued some which were fading with age by improving them with photo software-I really recommend those of you who have photos of this age that you do this-it also gives you a chance to 'back up' these photos so should anything happen to the originals they wont be lost forever.
