A New Layout, a Podcast and Some Old Favorites

Hi friends, I have a new layout, some old layouts, and a podcast to share today. Yes a podcast!
The ScrapGals are talking about "Documenting the Past", and gave me and my blog a shout out for scrapping my old family photos. How very cool is that! You can listen to it  here.
 
And my layout...
 
I used the May main kit from My Creative Scrapbook, and love how the embellishments in the kit work so well with this old photo of my Dad-in-law from the 50's. Aren't the mason jars just so cute!!! I've had such a fun time creating with this months kit!!
 
and...since The ScrapGals podcast was about my heritage layouts, here's some of my favorites from the last few years.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and thanks too to the ScrapGals for featuring my blog!!

These are fabulous Mary Ann! You certainly inspire me to pull out my old photos and scrap! Do you use the originals or do you make copies of them?

I love when you post your old photo layouts. Last summer it was my job to go through all the family photos (going back to some tin types) and organize, scan and print out a paper with all the info from the back of the photo. Now, I want to start scrapbooking but I'm not a fan of all the dark heritage layouts. It is the main reason I bookmarked your blog over a year ago. I love all the vibrant colors with the black and white photos. Thanks for so many great ideas.

I am such a huge fan of your scrapping style and taste of papers/embellishments, have been for quite some time! Your pages NEVER seem the same! They are always unique and fun!

OMGosh...I love each and every one. You have the most awesome photos and scrap them all so beautifully, telling some really poignant stories along the way...like the one about your grandma's 21st birthday. Wow.

I ended up here after listening to a podcast where they talked about your blog and heritage photos. I just have to say wow! I never scrap these photos cause I Never know what to do. Thank you for sharing these beautiful layouts and inspiring me to dig though some childhood photos and beyond. Now I have a great idea or two about what to do with my grandma's old black and whites.
