Granny's Photoalbum

What a challenge and treat! The Gingersnap Creations challenge for the Chestnut Theme Challenge is: Granny's Photoalbum which gave me another opportunity to create a little book (stab binding style) - a photoalbum. I enjoyed this one SOOOOO much
The front and back cover is corrugated card covered with BoBunny patterend paper. I decorated the cover page with stamps (Lily of the Valley), vintage button, lace and charm. The inside page are made from black card separated with traditional photoalbum paper which I rescued from a broken album ...
 The album tells the story of Grandparents, Sisters and Granchildren, hope you enjoy looking at the old photos ....
All images are from art-e-zine/Vintage Resources - Adopt an Ancestor. All words are printed and various embellishments (Victorian scraps, flower charm, old book page cutout, lace) added.
I hope you can join us at Gingersnap and show us your Granny's photoalbum, Petra.

Petra this is an amazing and creative book! I love how you arranged all those photos from Art e-zine (one of my favorite sources for vintage images).
