Pretty Paper Party Prompt 16

Use stacks and stacks of paper creating lots of layers, that was the idea of this prompt and I have to a certain degree.

I came across this photo of my Dad's Dad who died long before I was born - in fact he died in 1944 before Mum met Dad.  I didn't know his name or anything about him so now I have this picture I am interested in the background and my cousin's wife seems to be a bit of a genealagist so I shall be picking her brains:)

I have part of a family tree which I have stuck to the back of the green checked card and will write on the front of this any info I manage to obtain.  I've left this so it pulls out.

Click on the picture and it should go bigger.




I should probably have left the taking of the picture until the light was better tomorrow.  If I remember, I'll redo it!

I really like this page, Susi. Great colours and the hidden journalling you do is a fab idea.
