WOYWW~ Heritage Album


I am working on a Heritage Album at the request of my mom (I'm the only one in the family that scraps) for her Cousin's 90th birthday that is in mid August. We just started 2 weeks ago and to assist me to get this done in time my Mom has moved in with me even though she only lives less than 2 miles away. LOL


I have 17 pages done and 8 more in various stages of being done, My Mom retired last year and has been doing family research, she is continuing to search on some family members/branches so I am not finilizing my pages until I know she has everything she wants on them. I made a Heritage Album last year for a cousin that was getting married and my mom would ask..."how hard is it to get this up" so she could add more to it.


This is the first page that we are putting in every Heritage album...to us it says what we feel as to the importance of doing this....This is the only page I have scanned at this time...I will post more as I scan them....

Hi Bethanyr, I love to scrapbook as well but I do it digitally. I have made many wonderful books and this is a template of my mom's book after she passed away. I miss her so much!

I have nine sisters and brothers so they all got a copy..that is what I love about digital scrapbooking.
Good Luck with your scrapbook for you mom...Cherish her everyday!

You are a pretty special daughter to do all those pages. Sounds like you got a great helper, though. I had to laugh at the living only two miles away statement. She must really want to see these done. Happy WOYWW to both you and your mom!

Wow, quite an undertaking Bethany - love the idea of you and your Mom working on it together - how fab.

Mrs Hill , Kathleen,

died when she was 92,

we were neighbours for ten years,

she was born in the big house at the top of the 'hill' and died in a small house at the other end,

towards the end I spent time with her every day and she told me the whole history of the area and its people

I still cannot forgive myself for not writing it down

you are doing a Really Important Job
