suescraftstuff:- I try to put all sorts of things into order in a scrapbook. mainly family. I Started scrapbooking in 2009 and now am totally addicted. Just recently I started making a few cards, mainly for friends and family, I really enjoy doing this, but there is such a lot more to learn. currently I am learning to use promarkers, they're fantastic!!... I have a cricut cutting machine, but like to embellish with different mediums rather than just the cricut cutouts. I love lace and flowers, also distressing and embossing. This is just one of my many hobbies I've had over the years, a big part of it was woodcraft and painting.The woodcraft bit I got from my dad, him and my mum are my all time favourite people, my dad was so kind and clever, dad, I miss you, because of him I still dabble in the woodwork a bit too. But I am loving putting all my photo's into a scrapbook, and lately making cards, to keep and remember everone in a much more interesting way than a normal photo album .hopefully it will be passed on in later years.

My Dad & Grandmother 1930's

I wanted to scrap these photo's for while now, not really sure how to do it, didn't want anything too fancy as these were taken during the depression years in London, it must have been very hard for people at that time, there was no national health service, no social services, My Grandmother, like many, I expect, was a widow and had to bring up 5 boys all on her own. God knows how she did it, but they all survived, My father was the last to pass away at the age of 78.
I used Mariposa embossed and glitter collection for this, not putting too many embellishments on as the paper is fancy enough, I'm still not sure about the layout.
