    You are creating a great legacy for the lucky person who will inherit your scraps books Tok. Too wonderful!

      Thank you Cindy, your feedback is always appreciated.

      That will be an added bonus, but I’m very slowly getting it done and enjoying it.

      I’ve already started on my new layout of my other grandfather and because I have so few photos of him, I have to really stretch it, which led to a few discoveries.

      I put some of my layouts in a post bound album yesterday and I’m quite pleased. 😉

    Wow! you have a veritable family tree in pictures going here….something I have been wanting to do for ages…so professionally done

      I am very fortunate to have great photos and lots of information.

      You should try it, I find it very relaxing and I’m slowly getting it done, while having fun.

      Thank you very much 😉
