Presentation box - lace trimmed and satin bow with tassles
Last year I was asked by a friend Karina to make a Scrapbook for her granny as she was just about to celebrate her 100th Birthday - she gave me all the old photos that she had about her granny and a quick run thru who was who and what was happening in her life. I scanned and repaired all the photos and used copies for the scrapbook.
The whole thing was daunting - doing justice to the book, I had never done vintage beofre, the presentation, how I would lay it out, what to use? Ah, the only way to stop worrying was to start it and get on with it. So I took it one double page at a time, and worked when I could on it. When it was finished I thought it needed a box to keep it in and keep it safe - so made on with the bits leftover.
The lady had a big birthday celebration, and when she got this gift she cried with the memories and the thought that went into the gift, so well done Karina for all the leg work, and I was proud to be part of ther celebration.
Front cover - finished after the Birthday Party as we wanted the Birthday Girl!
Hand written note from my friend to her Granny and the first picture of her as a teenager.
There is a hidden tag with the story about her promotion to being a nurse Sister and then being asked by her husband to get married and she had to decide between career and marriage as you could not work if you were married back then.
Wedding days - her's and her sister
They have 5 children and a tag for each one and their dates of birth and names
