Another Page for My Vintage Scrapbook

About 10 years ago, I began a scrapbook of my parents' life. Throughout the project, I have added to pages and taken some apart and changed their look. It's amazing how your scrapbooking evolves over time. Today's photograph is from a page that I originally scrapped a number of years ago and decided to take apart and create a new page with a more vintage look. 

The photograph is of my Mom's grandparents (my great grandparents) and is an amazing picture from so many years ago. Luckily, the old page came apart very easily so new papers and elements could be used. 



I haven't shared many pages from this scrapbook but today must be a good day to share. Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

This is amazing and I think I'd love to copy this scrapbook idea as mother just gave me a gorgeous pic from last turn of the century, 100 years old or more pic of my grandmother as a child, her parents and some siblings.
I know it'll be a not ending project as we can always add more mementos to it.
Hugs dear Judy.
FABBY
