Scrapbook layouts - heritage

One of the things we did in Vienna was to go to the cemetery where members of my Dad's family are buried. I have been there before, but now that I've been doing some family research, I know much more about the families concerned.  For this layout I made my own 'background' by printing off a map of part of the cemetery:

For these black and white photos of  my Mum's side of the family I used mainly black/white with a touch of gold to accent. The white mat for journalling on the right hand page ended up such a strange shape in order to cover up some mistakes (oops):


  1. Even though I have never scrapped in my life, I can instantly recognize how special your layout is. I love that you printed of the exact map to use as well. Quite possibly for the first time, I see how extraordinary scrapbooking can be. This is so important for posterity. What a treasure!

  2. wonderful thing to scrap! i love that there are "scrappers" in our group :-)... i don't post all of my layouts but I love seeing yours.
