Family layout for Bitten by the Bug 2

Welcome to Bitten by the Bug 2's Heritage or Family challenge .  I decided to scrap some photos from my grandmother's 90th birthday a few years ago.  It was a huge family event and a great photo opportunity.  Sadly my grandmother passed that same year.

I used this sketch from Stick It Down.  It was the perfect way to scrap a lot of photos from this event.

I cut the banner and title with my Cricut.

My cluster consist of pieces of K & Co paper and wood embellishments, Petaloo flowers and Recollections bling flourish.

Here is a closer look at the second page.  I have a few relatives that prefer to stay out of social media so I put some stickies over their photos.

  13. I'm sorry to read about your grandmothers passing! I hope scrapping these pictures brought back many wonderful memories for you!! Beautiful layout, and great take on the sketch! Thanks for playing along with us this month at Stick It Down.

  14. Beautiful layout! I love all the layers and dimensions, your close-ups really show those details off! And your colour scheme and paper patterns go so well with your photos! Thanks for crafting along with us at Stick It Down!

  15. Wow what a great page, awesome photos that go really well.

  16. What a precious memory you are scrapbooking here! Your layout looks amazing-that is really a good sketch for lots of photos. Your paper and design choices complement the photos so well!

  17. I am deeply sorry about your grandmother's passing. How wonderful that numerous photos were captured of her last birthday and that it was spent in the company of loved ones.

    My own (maternal) grandma turned 91 last month and I am acutely aware that there are only so many more potential birthdays ahead of her (objectively, this is true for all of us, but, naturally, becomes even more true those of more advanced ages). Hopefully we can toast her special day and celebrate her venerable life for at least a few more years.
