This layout is of my father-in-law and his parents from about 1921-1922. The close up shows a charm with my FIL's picture. The second page contains tags with basic information and memories my FIL had of his parents.  Background papers for this layout are from K & CO. and Penny Black. Accents are from K & CO. and various other sources.

This next layout is about my father-in-law's school days and some childhood memories. I had no pictures of my FIL for this layout, so I copied pictures of the school he attended and the neighborhood store/theatre from a centennial book to include. The papers used in this layout are from Paper Pizazz. Journalling was printed on transparency film and tucked into place.

This next layout is a family photo taken in front of the family car. For the left hand page I copied the photo (and reversed it) onto transparency film, then mounted it onto cursive printed paper. The next page contains the same photo printed in sepia.tones. For the bottom, I enlarged the photo, and cut each person out separately, then mounted each in a slide frame. These were antiqued with Distress Ink.  The tags were made from the Paper Pizazz Heritage Kit. The background was pieced together from K & CO. scraps. The antique car accent was made from the car on page 54 of the Heritage Cricut cartridge.

This layout shows my father-in-law when he was in his teens. The background was made from Vintage Basics, from Colorbok. The tag was made from pieces from K & CO..The second page contains memories of my FIL's youth.

This last layout is of my in-laws wedding day. The background paper is from K & CO.  The center is a 10" x 8" piece of printed paper. I scanned a sheet of music and printed it onto the printed paper. The picture used is 3 3/4" x 5 1/2" accented with corners by K & CO. I cut 1 1/4" scallopped accents for above and below the picture. The definitions of  "LOVE" and  "FOREVER" were added above and below for accents.  1" ivory pearled ribbon was added all across the top and bottom of the page, centered at 1".  3/4" ivory pearled ribbon was added down the left and right sides of the center area.

The second page is made in a similar fashion, but features the marriage license and four 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" photos. Thanks for looking. I'd love for you to follow my blog and leave a comment.
