Once Upon a Time

If you've stopped by my blog before, you may have seen me mention that I love scrapping old family photos. I consider myself lucky that on both sides of our family, there has been someone that liked taking pictures, a lot of pictures, so I have what seems like a never ending stack of photos. Some I have stories to go with the photos, some I don't. This would be one that I don't. I wish my grandma was still alive so I could ask her why she and my grandpa were wearing matching jackets.

My grandma was an excellent seamstress and could make almost anything without even using a pattern, so I have a feeling she may have made these matching jackets for the two of them, but I'll never really know.  I do know that I love the picture and wanted it in our family album ;)

As always, thanks for stopping by!
supplies: papers & flair button - Maggie Holmes,  chipboard pieces and 3X4 card - Heidi Swapp, sequin stars, doily.
