Thanks for looking
This is a layout I have done for a challenge on Lets Scrap,The layout is for my family heritage album I am making the subject is my Great Aunt and Godmother Vera, I am not sure when this photo was taken but looking at other photo's I have it is around the late 1920's early 30's she was my Nan's younger sister, this photo as you can see is a hand painted one that was done at that time before colour photography, I was around 3 years old when she emigrated to Auckland New Zealand, I saw her when i was  8 years old when my Great Grandad died and she still wore hats all the time I have not one pic of her without a hat, Every year until she died she sent me a birthday card and Xmas card in same envelope (as my birthday is 1st January) always wrote inside from your loving godmother.
 Over the years we lost contact with the family from over there but with the Internet we have begun to search for relatives .....would love to know what happened to her daughters and family, to fill in the missing gaps in my book, as you can see i have hidden the journal tag again (bad handwriting ) and the single layout is because the opposite page I write the history and story of the person so my grandchildren have the history of my family.
The papers used are by Bo Bunny called Timepiece along with some bazzill card stock i used a woodware punch for border, the flowers cut out on my cricut, the brown bazzill  was stamped with scroll stamp with versamark, I added gold embossing powder and used my heat gun
