Carnival of Genealogy ~ Scrap Booking My Family History!

It has been quite a long time since I have participated in the Carnival of Genealogy and thought it was about time I catch up and submit an entry. Here is Jasia's post explaining this upcoming edition and the poster for this edition which was so beautifully made by footnoteMaven~

Call for Submissions! The topic for the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy will be: Scrapbooking Your Family History! Here's a real challenge for you... Who's up to the task? Create a scrapbook page on any theme that suits one or more of your vintage photos. If you don't feel very artistic, lay a few photos down on a piece of colored paper, add a few captions, take a snapshot of it, and voila! You have yourself a digital scrapbook page! If you enjoy creating traditional scrapbook pages, take a picture of one you've done, and that works too. If you're up for creating something more artsy, buy a kit or make your own. Go for it! If you've never done scrapbooking before, this is the opportunity you've been waiting for! If you're an experienced scrapbooker, dig in and enjoy the creative process! The deadline for submissions is August 1st. Thirty submissions will be accepted. 

This was fun as I don't get to spend as much time on scrap booking my family history as I would like. I stole a few precious minutes from other projects just to make this page. I chose a paternal grandmother to highlight this time and decided to stay with a basic black and white theme, with just a hint of color here and there.  Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by! 

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
