My Great Uncle

July 13, 2019

Today’s page showcases a photo from the collection that my Dad gave me.  It is a picture of my Dad’s Uncle.  Not sure where the photo was taken but it was during World War II.  He wrote on the back of the photo “how do you like my haircut the boys are doing a bit of sewing”.  I don’t know who he sent the photo to but I am glad to be able to share it with my family.  I decided to keep the page fairly simple, so I stamped onto the top left and bottom right hand corners of Very Vanilla card 12″ x 12″ using one of the images from the Gallery Grunge stamp set using Mossy Meadow ink.  I attached the photo to Early Espresso card and then the card front.  I cut Early Espresso card using the largest of the Rectangle Stitched Dies and attached it below and to the right of the photo.   I created my journaling on the computer and printed it onto Very Vanilla card using the second largest die in the Rectangle Stitched Dies.   I cut Sahara Sand and Soft Suede card using the smallest of the squares in the Stitched Shaped Dies and attached them into the corners around the photo and the journal block.  As usual when I create these pages, the journaling is attached to the page using re-positional adhesive, just in case I need to edit and retype the story.

I don’t get as much scrapbooking done as I should but I do love it when a page comes together well.  I am using these photos to help document our family history so that my grandchildren know a little bit about their heritage.

Bye for now,
