My photo

Hey all my name is Samantha, I'm 32 from England. Engaged. I have been handcrafting cards since I can remember from making mothers day cards at nursery to selling them to friends and family now. I love seeing the reactions on peoples faces when you make a unique handcrafted card just for them. I have also been a keen scrapbooker/photographer since I was about 5 when my parents started to foster and I always kept a scrapbook for each child we cared for - which goes with them to their new families so they don’t forget any precious memories of their childhood.

Sam's Scrapbook Process : 1956

Hi

Hope everyone is well


We have been clearing my nan's house to sell as she has moved in with my parents and I have claimed all photographs from her house. While going through them I came across some professional photos my nan had done when she was about 20. I also came across some love letters my grandad sent to her while he was away in the army.  The were very lovely dovey and  I really don't remember my grandad being like that, so I thought I'd incorporate the envelope on the layout which has my nan's old address (which has all been knocked down now) and it had the date and where my grandad posted it from. 


Used: 
Colorbök - Homespun Paper Collection
Vintage Lace
Doiley
Pearl Gems
Buttons


I love these photos of my nan. I changed my mind on the title as I was going to name it "Miss Deptford" (which was a beauty contest someone told me me nan won) But I thought I'd check and get correct date from her. She told me she never entered a beauty contest as she was far to shy! so 1. not sure who told me that tale! and 2. Yea she doesn't look shy in these photos!!

I can see where my mam gets her features from looking at these photos. I definitely don't take after my mam's side I looks like my dad's side.

On a none craft related point I got a job finally - its been nearly 8 months! I start Hays Travel (as customer service advisor for people who have booked holidays with Hays) on Monday and cant wait!

Thanks so much to taking the time to view and comment its much appreciated
