"Generations" Wedding Album
Dear friends, I thank you for joining me today!
I'm afraid I've been away from my blog lately; more than I'd like to be. But aside from 'no home internet' these days, my parents are not at all well. Dad was in the hospital this last week end, and mom totally depends on him.
My siblings and I have been caring for them as best we can.
It may not be long before we move them to a facility that can cook and clean for them; we shall see.
Well, - I am bringing back something I had posted in September 2015 I think.
I made this mini album (it is about 6"X6") for myself several years ago. It contains old wedding photo's! of members from my husbands family and my family as well. Several generations are in here.
The album is made of: White corrugated board, a mix of scrapbook papers- (mostly Prima paper) http://www.primamarketinginc.com/ from the 'Almanac' and 'Printery' paper collections. Also handmade flowers, some ribbon, chipboard, glitter glass, stickles, rubber stamping, and beads... : ) you get the picture! LOL
Here is the cover:http://bluefernstudios.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1 and has a sprinkle of glitter glass. I added a silhouette of black cardstock behind it~
I will be sharing this with Wen at Apple Apricot blog:
(click >) for her Simply Neutrals Tuesday
Bi-monthly link party!!
Please stop in to see some wonderful 'neutral' projects and photos~ There is a bit of everything shared there and so much inspiration! Perhaps you would join in and share with us!?!
Here is a page of my fathers parents:
I made the flowers. The teeny letter 'tickets' are from the (Prima) Almanac paper collection. We called grandpa "Pops" & he was quite a 'salty ol' dog! LOL~
Here are my mothers parents. It's hard to see the back drop behind them in this photo, but up close it is amazing! So vintage~
And here are my parents below. Mom was so beautiful : ) They were so in love - and still are after 62 years of marriage! *sigh*
Here are my great grandparents on my dads fathers side. (The German side:)
Here comes Alan's grandparents! (him mom's parents)
He could make A N Y T H I N G grow~ Grandma was a kindergarten teacher for 26 years!
And here is Grandma's parents. This, of course, is not their wedding photo (we don't have one) but a 50th Anniversary photo.
Alan's parents' wedding:
Also used some wedding applique and hand made flowers.
My dad's mom, Alberta, was sooo dear to my heart. We became very close when they moved out to be with us in Colorado. She was a dear soul.
Bless you all! and thank you for your thoughts and prayers~
