The story of our heritage

This is a book I have been working on for over a year. I did the cover today. The pages are coming along but I still have more to do. I have always been very interested in our family history and have traced our family back to the 1500's. So, I decided to do a book with pictures of many of our relatives. I don't really have too many pictures that date back past our great grandparents. But I do have the history and I just may include some of that in this book. It will be something that means a lot to me and hopefully one day our kids will appreciate it. The papers are by Graphic 45. The paper flower is made with the new Tim Holtz die cuts. The ribbon is awesome silk ribbon that I just love, love love! The tag is by 7 Gypsies and I just distressed it and mounted it on some torn brown paper. Some of the trinkets are also Tim Holtz - I do love his stuff!!! I just got his new book today and it has a wealth of information in it. It will be nice to have all of his techniques all in one book rather than hunting on his blog for things. Stay cool!!!


  1. What a wonderful project and keepsake! The cover is fabulous, and I hope as you progress through the inside you share some of the pages with us.

  2. This is great and a wonderful book to have for your family too!
