{long ago}

Here's a layout I made for Scrapbook Daisies a few weeks ago, using the Beautiful Moments collection from Carta Bella and an old b&w. (you all know how much I love the old black & whites!!)
This is one of the few old family photos that had no information besides date and place written on it. I am so very lucky that my hubby's grandma was good about writing stories on the backs of the photos. Although I never got to meet Grandma Marie, it's almost like she knew that one day I would want to know the stories of their life in Central California to hand down to the next generation. 

I hope you have a wonderful day, and as always, thanks so much for stopping by!

Love the colors you chose for the black and white photo, so pretty. How nice that she wrote info on the photo. I don't think many people did that back then.
