Scrapbooking Her Story

It’s only now that I feel able to begin to make an album of Mum’s photos.
I sorted through that black bin bag of photos, a little at a time,
and sent off a fair amount to my siblings.

What was left fell into distinctive categories: childhood, RAF, marriage, children, 

family holidays, special occasions, weddings and the next generation.

 If I scrapbooked the photos traditionally, I’d have several albums by the time I’d finished.
Instead, I’ve gone with a Project Life design and one album will most likely do the job.

Because some of the very old photos are quite small,
 I’m going to use assorted page protectors:
6×12, 12×10 and 12×12,
which I think will work well and be interesting to look at when compiled as a whole.
What have you done with your old photos?

  1. This is going to be a wonderful project.

    We don't have very many old photos and my Mum isn't a collector of bits and pieces so no dance tickets or old programmes or clipping or anything like that here. Sometimes I wonder where I got the urge from..

  2. What a great start to such a project. I am mostly working with copies of old photos & as I re-connect with my birth family I am gaining more & more photos. I will watch yours & probably scrap lift a lot 🙂

  3. ah!!! using project life pages and stuff makes so much sense for something like this.
    I wish I'd thought of that when I started with my granny's pictures
