1941 - Friends

Kimberly Stewart recently released another kit that just begged me to scrap some vintage photos with -  "Maybe -The Kit"  The colours as well as the elements are exactly what I like and Kimberly's papers are always beautiful.

Family Heirloom

This picture featuring my Great grandparents is particularly special. My sister and a distant cousin calculated that this picture was taken in December of 1892, which means that Great Grandma is carrying my Grandma (who was born the following February) Yup, that ‘bump’ is Grandma. Isn't that amazing?
My cousin is writing a series of books on some of the women in my family, all named ‘Sophia Charlotte’ and since she knows our history pretty well, I’m sure they are right about their conclusion. Pretty neat stuff!


I used the “Artless Collection” by Lonetta Avelar for this page in my family history album. Gorgeous stuff!

I turned my page into a Quick Page for you. Get the freebie HERE. Sorry for the mistake on the preview! The collection/kit is called Artless not Artful *blush*

Summertime - Splash!

Ah yes...wonderful summer holidays at the beach! How we loved those family vacations at the seaside. My mom, bless her heart, took many pictures of us having the time of our lives.
This was taken at Port Edward on the south coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal. Many moons ago. I'm thinking about 1964. That's little me there in the front LOL And we are ready for a day of sea, sand and fun!

I used a kit by Cathy Krenek Designs "Splash" for my LO. Love all the little goodies in there, but those flip flops make me smile!

The bundle will be available shortly, check out Cathy's Store
I also used the Flair Pack and the dark blue Alpha


I also turned the border into a freebie for you. So get the kit, drop the border, some pictures and elements on there and enjoy those memories a little longer!

You can download the freebie HERE

Digging into my treasure chest...

...That would be my chest full of old family photographs. To be sure I have converted the real box and album into a virtual folder on my computer, but the treasures are just a precious!

Like this one featuring my Grandparents with my Great grandmother, and a few of the ladies in the family who all share the same name as Great grandma.

I used the beautiful 'Riveting' Kit by Lonetta Avelar (Creative Victorian Design)

Beautiful stuff!
