Heritage of the Past...

Hi everyone hope all well with you all. I come back with more new layouts to share. Most of these are heritage layouts. It is a cold Saturday morning here in Michigan. But even if there snow on the ground it still a beautiful one.

The first layout is of my father's family reunion in Aug 1969. The two photos are the original and make this layout from a sketch by Becky Fleck.
Products Used:
We R Memories Keeper Antique Chic Paper 
Strip of paper Colorbox, DCWV Heirloom Stack
Bo Bunny ET Cetera paper
Martha Stewart Photo Corner and Hydrangea Punches 
American Craft Studio Calico white stickers 
Black Photo Corners (to secure the photos)
Blue Chevron washi tape 
Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive 
Scotch Craft Glue 

This is a layout of my maternal great great-grandmother. My mother has said this is the only "grandmother" she ever got to know. Since my mother's grandmother died at the age of 41. This is my mother's great-grandmother (her grandmother's mother) She was said to be a sweet, loving person to her family. I guess you can tell from just looking at her photo. She must have been a happy lady. She probably had her moments like we all do. But just from looking at this photo as well as other photos of her. Her kids, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her life. She did have 13 children at least 9 of them lived to adulthood and went on to have families of their own.

This is the backside of the same project life history layout. Most of the products used in this layout are the same as what I listed in the above layout. The only other products I used is clear photo corners for the two original photos in the two bottom photo pockets. The foral pattern paper I used to matted the two original photos. I got in a rak from a friend. So don't remember the name of the paper. But thought it fit with the photos nicely. Hope you all enjoy my new layout. I still have to do a layout share video with these layouts. To put on my youtube channel. I hope to do that before the weekend is over. If I get it film and up. I'll make sure to posted on here for you all to see. Well hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy your day.
