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.

This is My cousin Linda, her husband and her two sons.  She's the daughter of my Dad's Brother Teddy. We were kids together, grew up in London and Essex, spent quite a few nights at parties with our family, especially at Christmas. When we were both working in London, during the 60's we used to chat all the time on the phone and always laughed until we cried !! We had the same sense of humour. She was like the sister I never had.
After life's journey we seemed to lose touch, I had several relationship upheavals, moved several times and consequently lost each other's whereabouts.
Linda said she often thought about my brother and I and so she tracked my brother down in Australia of all places, he contacted me after getting her email address and I got in touch, and now we're back on track and in touch which is wonderful.
There's nothing like your real family roots.
