Some Heritage layouts...

Hey everyone I know it been a while. But I'm back with a few more heritage layouts for you. Some of these layouts I got inspired to do by seeing other people's layouts online. But I used my own touch on it. These layouts are of my mother side of the family. Hope you all enjoy the pictures below. Also I added the supplies below each of the layouts. That I used.

The snow has been melting away fast. It seems like Spring coming soon. I'll be able to open my bedroom window soon. It'll be nice to get some fresh air through my bedroom/art studio. Hope you all are having a great week so far? Stay tune for a few more updates before the week ends.


                       "Charles Kitchen"
This layout is of my maternal great-great-great-grandfather
I found this picture on and I saved it to my gallery 
page in my family tree on the site. I finally decided to use the picture 
for my mother side of the family heritage album. I'd to fix the photo 
a little bit in Photoshop CS5. I then printed the photo to the size 5x7. 
From my Kodak ESP 3250 All in one Printer. I printed on Kodak Paper
for a better print quality. It's always good to print your photos with the 
same paper brand for your printer. But I also used different photo paper
and they all came out OK.
