1st page in Our Family Album

Hello world :)!
Im back again :P! 
And even though i said i would be back with the door sign i made for our friend, im back with a scrapbooking page, the one that represents the start of our FAMILY ALBUM :). You probably remember those old pictures of my family and their friends. Well, i did not have much patience and i started scrapping them. Of course, first i scanned them, so they remain in electronic format also. 
So, this page is focused on my grandparents from both sides :). Unfortunately, none of them is alive, the last one to go was my grandmother from my father's side. The album will be in English, so that, later in time, everyone in our family - and not only - understands it :). The page is in 20x20 format, as the album. Let's see how it looks.
Down the memory lane:
...and into the journaling now:
...more focus on the photos and embellies:
...and the sketch:
I will submit this LO to 2 challenges: Get Picky's 12th challenge and Bird is the Word's MEMORY challenge.
I hope you like it and inspires you. Now im working on another page for the same album, soon i'll be done and will post it here, of course.
The door sign i will post as soon as i get to take a photo of it, as promised ;).
Until next time, i wish you all a wonderful week filled with joy :)!


  1. Sal Anja!
    Mai, sunt deja curioasa cum o sa arate albumul de familie la final. Cate pagini va avea? Sunt tare curioasa, sincer. Imi place mult pagina si am senzatia ca e nitel mai dificil formatul, pt. ca tre sa concentrezi totul intr-un spatiu mai mic, nu? Imi plac culorile, fac ca pozele sa iasa in evidenta! Super!

  2. So nice page it wakes up so many memories. I recognized the 60´s from that incredible hair-do :). Very nice idea, Anja, of making a family album - it´s a must-have, i guess :)! Looking forward to the continuation.

  3. Super pagina si ideea unui album de familie in stil scrapbooking e nemaipomenita. Dar, tu fiind o scrapperita, babnuiesc ca se impune de la sine un astfel de abbum, nu :)? Felicitari, Anja, si mult spor!

  4. What amazing photos and such a wonderful opportunity to scrap these memories. Thanks for playing along with us over at Get Picky..x

  5. Oh, ce amintiri pretioase, trebuie sa fie incluse intr-un album special, categoric! Super pagina, Anja!!! Le astept pe urmatoarele ;). Mult spor!!!

  6. Hey Veronica great vintage layout - love the colour scheme - thanks for playing at Bird is the Word :)

  7. Hej Veronica, jag gillar din LO skarpt :-)!!!
    Det är sant att, som en scrapbokare, man måste ha ett familjalbum, men jag känner inte så många som har ett.
    Så är jag väldigt nyfiken om de nästa sidorna :).

  8. What treasured photos, so priceless! Love the embossed photo mat and the cool distressing on the cream paper!

  9. Oh, dragele mele, ma simt coplesita :)! Va multumesc din suflet: pentru ca ma urmariti, pentru intelegere, pentru sustinere, pentru comentarii, pentru cat de dulci sunteti! Ma bucur din suflet sa aud ca va place pagina si ideea unui album de familie si ca sunteti curioase.
    Sa aveti o zi superba:)!

  10. Hi ladies!
    Thanks a lot for your sweet comments, so glad you like my page, it warms my heart!!!
    Have a lovely day :)!

  11. Viveca, jag är mer än glad att du gillar min LO. Jag känner inte så många scrapbookare, så jag vet inte hur många har ett familjalbum, men jag vill ha ett :).
    2 övriga sidor kommer snart ;).
