I've been so busy the last few days that I have neglected my blog.. I'm having a 'staycation' and time is flying by! Why is it that when you're at work, the days drag by and when you have days off they fly by?? If anyone can tell me, please let me know how I can slow down my holidays!
Anyway, I digress, here is my effort for the challenge over on Another Freaky Scrapbook Challenge Blog where we were encouraged to scrap about our ancestors... so I chose this one! I used a sketch from the Lets Get Sketchy Blog here
This photo is of five generations of our family..starting with my Gran (sitting front left) my Mum (middle back row) me (back row left), my sister (back row right) and my sisters daughter (front right) with her son on her knee.
I entirely used Kaisercraft Humming Bird collection and I journaled on the back (as I often do). The wooden bird cage is also a Kaisercraft one too and the only deviation I used was to use sequins from my stash (no manufacturer I'm afraid! ) The punch for the banner at the top was a Martha Stewart one. The rest of the embellishments were fussy cut from the papers including the birds and the birdcages. I had used a lot of these papers in my Counterfeit Kit for September, Summer Swansong, from the CKCB blog.
The photo was taken on the occasion of my Grans 90th birthday and we all visited her at the home she had moved to. Sadly my Gran is no longer with us, but this is a great photo to have now that she isn't around anymore.
This is the sketch I used
Do let me know what you think.. and pop back soon!
