Family heritage

Scrapbooking is predominantly about recording our family heritage, right? Sometimes I think we forget that, I love to create pretty pages full of lovely flowers and patterned papers and forget that I am supposed to be recording a history in my albums! This layout - which you may recognise from me sharing many moons ago - was all about that, I interviewed my great uncle about his life and recorded the answers in this text on the layout.

It took me an absolute age to make this page - I'm a slow scrapbooker anyway (give me a card and I can whip one up in ten minutes!) but there was so much detail to include on this page and I was so particular about it (did you know I'm a perfectionist!) but it was definitely worth it, as this is one page of mine that I do not feel has gone out of fashion according to what embellishments and papers are trendy at the time. This is a classic and I still love it!

I've been getting ready for my first cardmaking class in this new series, for this coming Monday so I'm not quite ready with my Stampin' Up announcements to officially mark the fact that I've signed up a demonstrator, but keep checking back as I will be offering a special introductory offer for you all for orders placed from the catalogue, very soon! Do you like my new blog header?
