Our Group Challenges - April

The group challenge for April was based on a baby photo of ourselves, the journalling to be what you wanted to tell the baby you what she would need to for now, the present. It was an interesting challenge and I found the journalling difficult; it is hidden in the tags. The papers were from Simple Stories-Documented.
These photos were taken in 1958; I am about 12 months old. I am with my Mum and Uncle Frank, my father had already left the scene and was long gone only to return a few years later to give me two more wonderful and much loved sisters.
Uncle Frank was a batchelor farmer who worked the family farm in the south of Western Australia.  I am the oldest granddaughter on my mothers side and he is her eldest brother; a favourite uncle because he had time for us not having a family of his own.
My Mum was a beautiful, intelligent young woman but life and being left to bring up four children alone without the supporting mother's benefit, or a life partner have worn her down and changed who she should have been.
Thank you for looking and any comments you may leave, best wishes.

  1. OMG Susan your two-pager is absolutely stunning! L-O-V-E the elegant muted colours and the beautifully designed details! Have to ask what the black intricate scroll detail up at the top of the right hand page is, it's absolutely delicious! the semi circle made of pearls on the left page is such an exquisite detail. xoxox Eila
