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 : If there ever comes a day

Good Evening All 

Happy New Year this is my first post for 2014 and its slightly a sad subject ive scrapped.

Its a heritage layout I have been working on for the past few days and the journaling is what took the longest as I really didn't know what to right. The photo is of my great aunt and uncle who died age 3 and 4 of Diphtheria in 1934. It is the only photo we have of them and I believe this photo was taken a month or so before they died of the disease. Very sad as my great grandmother also lost another son age 5 to the same thing 2 years earlier in 1931 but there is no photo of him.

I have had the photo for quite a few years and wanted to go with a vintage nursery theme but didn't know how to do it.

Sam as I read your journal it made me sad. I can't image as a mother to lose 3 kids. Its so sad and your great grandmother is a strong women. Blessed be to God that she had strength she need. Its a joy to have learn about your family through your aunt. Thank God we have other family members to help use keep them in our memories and hearts.

Sam, you did a beautiful job on this layout! They will forever be remembered, as short as their lives were. It is wonderful we can keep family and friends alive through our scrapbooking. The vintage look of the layout is perfect! I am happy, too, that as sad as it still is for your Great aunt to recount the story that you are able to get it first hand.

Hey Sam, I finally decided to become a follower to your blog. I've to say it very beautiful layout for your family members. This is the reason why I like scrapbook heritage pictures with stories. Because it tells a story that going to keep those family members. That have passed on. Still with us and future family members.
