I scrap-booked two 12″ x 12″ pages in January 2016. The photos are of me as a baby and were  taken by my uncle at he’s studio in Alberton, South-Africa. The dress and bonnet were made by my other aunt, my mom’s sister. Some of the black and white photos were tinted, the dress was tinted pink, so I think it must have been pink. I always knew that my uncle had taken the photos, but I only recently found out that my aunt had made my clothes. I have scrapbooked these photos before and you can see them here. My inspiration was “Baby” by Trisha Ladouceur from the Canadian Scrapbooking magazine of Fall 2010.
