Today I'm sharing the first scrapbook page for my own heritage family album. I made one for my sister several year's ago and realised that I should have one too, so that treasured photos and memories are recorded - for me and my daughter.
I'm using my favourite size which is 8" x 8" and I started with the torn wood paper and the grenade image which, would you believe, was torn from a paper bag a local craft store used for my shopping!
The journaling is on the front of a pocket which holds a small collection of photos taken of Palestine at the time. These are all stamped on the back with the name of a photography studio in Palestine but I've no idea whether they were taken by my dad or the studio. They were obviously important to him and are a fascinating insight into what the major buildings looked like at the time.
The photos are mounted onto acid free card but I always use scanned copies, that way there are several sources in case some get lost.
