Well, after introducing you to my Angel the other day (click HERE if you didn't see her), I thought I would introduce you to my Grandfather from my Mum's side. This is Harry, my Mum's Father. Born in Yorkshire in 1904, the family moved firstly to Cardiff and then Newport (South Wales). We are not sure when exactly only that it was during the First World War. Maybe in about 2021 I will have a bit more information ey?
This photo was taken in 1925 prior to Harry's 21st birthday. A bit of a looker don't you think? In fact, my Uncle, (Harry's son), my Brother and his son, Jack, are scarily close in looks, more so than my cousin Christopher who is direct male descendant.
The layout for this was taken from a sketch on my friend Karen's blog HERE. Thank you Karen!
The papers are from the K&Company Ancestry range, some Laura Ashley ribbon strip, Bazzill, DCWV and some scraps/snippets would you believe! The flower has been made using Tim Holtz, Paperartsy and Stampin Up flowers.
The frame is from Stampin Up - Everything Eleanor. The flourish stamp is also SU. The numbers are Prima. Edge punch is Martha Stewart.
Die cuts are Tim Holtz. Letters are chipboard ones, painted then stamped with the same script stamp (Tim Holtz) and brushed with Perfect Pearls
The journalling block has now been completed with details about Harry (having checked my book). I hadn't stuck it down when I took the photo, so it isn't wonky now.
Well, now you know a little more of my family history. As I mentioned above, I have the K&Company Ancestry collection of papers along with album, so I am putting significant family photos in there and keeping every scrap of the paper collection in the box so it doesn't get used!
Well, thank you Karen for this sketch, it is one that can be used time and time again adding to or leaving plain!
Thank you for popping by and looking and I hope you will sign in so I know you have been to see me.
