Starting Mom's Album


It has taken me quite awhile to start this memory book of our mother, but I finally started last weekend.  I have a lot of the photos from her life, and started by sorting them into "themes" - childhood, young woman, marriage, family, friends...so that I could design the pages around the themes.  I found this much easier, since I do not know who all the people in the photos are, or dates and ages.

I really enjoyed working with the old photos from when she was a very young girl.  I also really liked the sepia and black and white photos.  I think they will give a feel of the different years as I move from them into color.

Here is the two page layout.   I am using kits to put the pages together, so it will all coordinate, and I am trying to use the vintage look for the oldest photos, and match papers to the decades.  These two pages are tied together with the lace trim and accents.

I am not sure yet if I am completely done, or if I will go back in with some stamps or masks. or....so, if you have any suggestions for me, post a comment and let me know what might add to this.
Thanks!
