The Generation Game

6 generations of women in my family. I'm pretty proud of this. Not many people are lucky enough to have photos of an unbroken family line from 1856. I have a few very vague memories of my maternal great grandmother, Alice Wallis. (I had to blur out the other names, in case anyone unscrupluous decided to use my mother's maiden name for nefarious purposes) My beautiful grandmother is still very much living and still very beautiful. The family resemblance amongst all of us is strong and often remarked upon (although I think the beauty gene skipped a generation with me!) I hope M has inherited it.

Wow, I would love to have a collection of photos like that! It's amazing, you have got me wondering what the women in my family looked like many years ago

I think your older layouts are wonderful. Isn't it amazing how our scrapping just keeps evolving with new and different techniques?!
