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.

Grandad Weston

This is another photo I had given to me of my paternal Grandfather Jack. Here he is working on the roads in London,Later he became a stone mason, which was to eventually take is life, the dust from working with marble/granite caused lung infections and in those days they had no chance of survival. Don't they all look the same in their caps, waistcoats and moustaches? lol
My father didn't know his father well as he was only a baby when his father passed away, but according to family he was a well liked and kind man. This was taken on or around the 1920's.
