I scrap-booked two 12″x 12″ pages using photos of my aunt as a baby, my great-aunt, Dad, grandmother and grandfather. Dad’s sister was named after her grandmother Christina Philippina Margaretha Truter (20.10.1861 -8.12.1945) I have scrap-booked my great-grandmother and you can see the layout here. Most of the photos were taken at The Grand Parade, in Cape Town, South Africa Circa 1939. There is more information on the tags. I have also scrap booked my Great aunt before, which you can see here The scrapbook of my father, aunt, grandmother and grandfather is here. My inspiration was “A little child” by Sarah Fishburn from the book “Creative Paper Techniques for Scrapbooks (Memory Makers)

On my table.
I spritzed the background with Grape flavored Kool-Aid, which I mixed with a 100 ml of 70 % alcohol in a spray bottle. The Kool-Aid mix is a grungy color, which I like. Next time I will try to get unsweetened Kool-Aid as The sweetened Kool-Aid is sticky, but it also smells nice 😉 I labeled the bottle with the empty packet for future use.
Rubbing alcohol or isopropyl alcohol. Should be used in a well-ventilated area due to inhalation hazards. Poisoning can occur from ingestion, inhalation, absorption, or consumption of rubbing alcohol.
I use a hairdryer to speed up drying time.
