More on Mother's Mini
I'm hopping around on Mother's mini and am almost half way there. Above is the cover page using a Prima jewel I bought at Archivers. That is just about all that brown lace from Webster's pages. I hate to use it all up. They have the most gorgeous trims!
The photo of my Mother was taken when she was 17. I think it is her favorite photo. The pages below will be near the back of the album. The first page of Mother with me was shows photos from the 60's. I went a little more modern with the paper on the later page for the 70's photos. We will fill in the journaling block when I give her the album. I can not place the location of the photo taken of the two of us on a green vinyl couch. Who had a couch like that? I just can't remember but I bet she will. Perhaps it will touch off a memory of an event, too.
There are very few photos of my mother and me together when I was growing up - maybe a half dozen total. It's sad really that no one took pictures. I'm so glad today that people take so many pictures of their children. I just hope these photos get preserved and don't stay forever in phones and cameras. It is one of the best benefits of our scrapbooking hobby - scrapbookers take more photos.
Thanks for visiting!
