Hi and welcome!
Starting over in Blogland isn't easy!! But here goes my second post : )
I thought perhaps I would post an album I made a while back... for myself!
(How often does that happen?!? Not very ; ) Don't often make things 'just for me', but I
acquired some great old family photo's and wanted to create a keepsake~
I created an album of wedding pictures from some of my late husbands family; and mine as well~
Though I made this over 2 years ago, I wanted to make sure it got into my blog.
It is my most cherished creation and one of the pic's dates back to my Great-great Grandparents on my fathers side~
There is something about vintage B&W pictures that... makes me want to create!
I want to see them displayed with beautiful papers, laces and bits of ephemera.
I am often inspired and filled with idea's when old photo's are in my hand.
Thank you so very much for stopping by~
Made with white corrugated board, some vintage sheet music (a gift from my father!) and the chipboard is from (click here>) Blue Fern Studio's. I traced and cut out a mannequin from black paper for backdrop.
Most of the papers used in this album are from Prima; (>) http://www.primamarketinginc.com/ the Almanac and Printery collections~
The fussy-cut bird and nest was G45 Little Darlings paper. The chipboard vines are Blue Fern Studio's and the bird cage is a die cut.
My husbands grandparents (mothers side); Kate (Catherine) and Chuck - but we all called him "Poppy"~ He was a gardener by trade and had several green houses where he made his living. Grandma Kate was a kindergarten school teacher for many years.
The chipboard is again, Blue Fern. That cute hanger from Tim Holtz.
Here is my parents! Isn't my mother a beautiful bride!
I used lots of home made flowers (Prima papers) and the butterfly; Blue Fern.
This is my fathers grandparents~ I've heard some stories about them!!! Can you see the twinkle in their eyes? All of the buttons used in this album are vintage - from grandma's jar.
My husbands parents~ With the Grooms parents (Grandma & Grandpa "O") on the left; and the Bride's parents (Kate & Poppy) on the right. I used some wedding Applique, home made flowers, lace, ribbon and the beautiful bird paper is My Minds Eye.
What a fun page this was!Alan's Great-Grandparents above (at their Anniversary party - there was no wedding photo)~ I've always known them as 'Oma & Westy' He was quite the old salty dog! Joined the army by lying about his age ; ) and claims he helped chase Pancho-Villa through Mexico~
There are a few more pages... but I think I will end with this one below. My fathers parents~
Again, a mix of BF Studio's chipboard, hand made flowers, corrugated board, lace, netting, and Prima papers~
I am so thankful you joined me today!!!! Much blessings to you and I hope you can get out and enjoy the beautiful day God has gave, : ) ~Karen
