This is the first double LO I have made in ages, as I tend to like to just make single LOs these days, but I was determined to change that this weekend. The pictures are from my aunties 80th birthday earlier this year, when the whole family trundled over to Cambridge to celebrate with her. My family on my dad's side is quite big, as dad comes from a family of six, so there are lots of cousins and even more second cousins. It was a beautiful warm day and everyone had a great time catching up.
I absolutely love these 3D butterflies from K&Co and nearly used them all up.
This LO is not really finished as I haven't put any journalling in yet, but until I speak to my mum I really don't know what to put. It is another page for my aunt's album and I know that she loved to dance and went regularly to a weekly dance, but that's all I know, so I need more details.
This last LO is also for my aunt's album. It is a picture of my uncle when he was a little boy.
Don't you just love these old traditional photos which were always so posed. My uncle's father was a coal miner, just as my uncle was. Following in a family tradition on the Welsh side of my family. My late grandfather was also a coal miner too, but suffered badly with his lungs when he moved to London when my mother was young. When I look at pictures like this, it makes me want to start delving into my family history and perhaps make an album about my ancestors.
Has anyone made an album like that?
That's my creative side shown for the week? What creative things have you done this week?
