Throwback Thursday Challenge

Happy Thursday!!
Come on in and visit for a little bit. Today is Throwback Thursday, our challenge was to use any Cricut Lite Cartridge and we had to do a layout. I chose to use the Lacy Labels, I also used My Creative time Stamp Set Journaling. I need to do more layouts,to get started on doing albums for my children someday I will be able to do this. Below is my layout for this challenge

I am going thru a vintage stage, I love history and ancestry stuff, to see what family looked like back in the day and to see the styles is neat.
This picture is my mom side of the family, my grandma had 13 children. there are 9 children still living. I would ask my mom when I was younger about life when she younger, and having all of her brothers and sister growing up 4 bedroom house with one bathroom. This photo was taken in 1969 before my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. There were signs of her having this disease but back then not much was known about it. I have 3 aunts that currently have this disease, and 2 uncles that have passed that had Alzheimers. My mother does not have this disease, Thank Goodness she exercises, eats right and keeps her challenges her brain. I hope I dont get cruel disease, well enough of this.

I hope you like this layout, Thanks for listening dont mean to give too much information but I thought I would explain why I chose to do this layout with this photo. Excuse where I messed up on my lace I noticed it was crooked, oh well nothing is perfect in scrapbooking. I guess it makes it a original.

Thank's for visiting,

  9. Hello Vicky! What a fabulous LO. I am very partial to vintage, just love it. Your flowers are gorgeous. I just love all the swirls and the pearls. I don't mind the story at all, I actually like it. I really think it is important to write that stuff on here for you to look back on, it is a little scrapping journal. I tend to write books on my blog. But it is mine:)
