The very talented Amy at Tsuruta Designs has put a challenge on her blog to show the first scrapbook page you did and the last. The idea is to show how your style has changed. This is the very first page I did in 2006-I keep thinking I will redo it because I didn't have a clue and was so nervous to stick anything down. I used the backing paper because I used to be into the Bay City Rollers ( a UK pop band who wore tartan for my non UK friends) and it reminded me of the 70s. I used to go into photo booths and have my picture taken as a treat - we didn't own a polariod so this was as instant as it got LOL! Yes, that does say first perm - a lady down the road did it and I thought it was going to be all curly but no it wasn't!
This is the page I've just made. I've joined Ancestry.co.uk to do some research and a lady on there has my paternal tree back to 1742-how easy was that! This is a picture I downloaded of my Great grandparents and their children, except that my Grandfather wasn't born yet so is not on it. I think this is about 1870 and he was born in 1874. These papers are Anna Griffin and I had hoped to be able to one day use a picture that would compliment the papers and here I think it is.
