Domino family book


Gingersnap Creations Challenge GC141 is Granny's Photo Album & this is my entry - a domino book featuring photo's of my family on the maternal side. This is the front.


and the back of the closed book.


The open book


and a close up of my Great Grandmother & Great Grandmother & Great Grandpa

I'm very lucky to have some fantastic old family photos to draw on which I reduced in size & printed out to use:-) Some I used whole & some I cut out.

I'd started to make this domino book for my Mum just before flying out to Oz so just packed it up, including bits that I thought that I may want to use & finished it off .....

I'm having problems with blogger - not allowing me to upload all the pic's I wanted to but hopefully those that have uploaded will give you the idea of my domino book.

I loved doing it & it was much appreciated by my Mum :-)
