Here is another LO that will be going into my Heritage album, even those this photo was taken when I was still a baby. Does that still count as Heritage? probably not, but I'm OK with that. Its also another LO that I left out the journaling, even though I've heard the storys many time of when the famous Billy Graham came to Moscow and we where blessed to go for the conference. I was a baby so I don't know anything but I feel the story should be told and saved for years to come. That's why i'm working with these old photos for this album so I can preserve as many wonderful memories for generations to come.

I'm working with super old photos of my family members for a Heritage album, and I find it a bit challenging to put together. I'm used to working with 4x6 prints that are bright in color and current with whats going on Now. But a lot of the photos I'm working with are B/W and totally different sizes. And I'm not very confident using more "modern" pattern paper with those vintage photos, so i'm slowly working on my album. This photos is of my Grandfather in the army, I'm really bad at using words and express everything, that's why there is not journaling. But I wanted to talk about how brave, bold and still Godly he was. I'm also a bit scared I'll get some facts wrong, and I've been meaning to sit down with my mom with a pen a paper to get the story just right. till then I'm having fun making layouts and leaving lots of room for stories.

I saw this Layout on another Blog and I just loved it and had to try it for my self! I love the hand stitching of this fun design and that fact that not all pieces are stitched, some are actual patterned paper. I used leftover paper from an older Crate Paper Valentines day collection and used Maggie Holmes patterned paper to cut out some says that I really liked. I totally can not take any credit for this LO cuz its not my design but I really wanted to share with you my take on the project. Enjoy!
