Nanny Mac

February 29, 2020

Ron’s Mum was always called Nanny Mac by her grandchildren and then her great grandchildren.  I found some photos that were taken in 1980 of a visit to Evans Head in 1980 to see her.  Ron, Sarah and Ron’s sister Rhonda painted Mum’s dividing fence.  These photos were taken after the painting.  I kept the page simple (as ususal).  I embossed Coastal Cabana card using the Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing Folder and attached it down the length of a 12″ x 12″ Whisper White page.   I attached the photos across the page and added my journalling which I created on the computer. I also created the title by printing onto Whisper White paper using the computer and then fussy cutting the title.  A little tip for you, I don’t keep 12″ x 12″ card in every colour, so when I want to do something like this, I make sure that I can cut the A4 card and use something to hide the small gap.  In this case the main picture!

This page is truly super simple but I am glad to have these photos in an album.  My grandchildren really love looking through the pages and finding out about their relatives, it gives them a broader view of their family.  They are really lucky to still have my Mum and Dad (their Great Grandparents) around to tell them stories as well .

I hope you are going through your photo stash, whether it be on the computer, on dvd’s or simply tucked away in a cupboard and creating simple pages for everyone to enjoy.  They really do not have to be complicated and it is so amazing how many memories can be invoked by one photo!

Bye for now,

Kris
