Ancestors

Bev is hosting the challenge at The Three Muses this week and she wants us to introduce some of our ancestors. I have made a digital scrapbook page showing my great-grandparents on my Dad's side. The picture was taken at my Nanna and Grandad's wedding in 1938. I actually remember my Great-nanna, the lady second from the right. She lived until she was 94.

Hi Jackie,
Wow, I love what you did with this scrapbook page. I love the look of layering antique scrap pappers with old photos.
And how nice to have a great picture of your relatives.

Beautiful!
