This is My Life


First off.....sorry for the blurred picture here.    I'm still getting use to the new blogger format.
I promise my layout is nice and clear even with the old pictures.

My brother and I have started sorting through old pictures and scanning them so everyone in the family has copies of everything.  These are all on my mothers side of the family, the descendants of her maternal grandfather and grandmother.   Top picture is of them, bottom left couple and their 10 children and their spouses.   The next picture is of them seated in the middle with all of their grandkids and great grandkids at the time.   I'm guessing all these pictures to have been taken about 1942 just by looking at my Mom and guessing her age in the pictures.   The bottom picture is then everyone all together.   Talk about a big family reunion.   Amazing.

I'm using this layout for the challenge #514 at  "LASTING MEMORIES"

LM #514 - Wonders of the World - England/UK 

Hello, hello! We are so happy that you are here today. We are in the middle of a nice long weekend here in the USA and I hope that wherever you are, that you are having a good weekend.

It's time for our second challenge for September. Our theme for this month is - Wonders of the World - and this week we are visiting England/UK.

 England and the UK are filled with history and traditions. The love and loyalty to their Royal Family are based on Faith and Culture. So this week's challenge is:

 LM #514 - Create a layout with a throwback family theme. Something the symbolizes history to you and your family.

Maybe it's the King / Queen in your life or the Prince / Princess that makes you smile every day. Or maybe there is a special family Matriarch that has passed that you would like to remember and pay tribute to you
