Journaling reads:
The little girl in the doorway is my great-grandmother, Vivienne Mary Schanbacher and her mother, Grace Emmiline (Jenkins) Schanbacher. To say they had a rough life is an understatement. This is the house in which they lived in Gaines, Tioga County, Pennsylvania until my great-grandmother married and moved away. My grandmother grew up not much better off, but she was raised in a frame farmhouse much sturdier than the shack of her mother's youth.

circa 1913

    Wow. Great layout. What a fabulous photo you have of your family. I really like its placement in the layout and how you've hung it! That holder looks to me like you've given the home a beautiful roof, which happens to be the most important part of a home. The love shines through your beautiful page.
    Jennifer, what a piece of your history to have to scrap...love the flourish embellishment and the way you situated this photo.
    This photo and layout have such visual impact - what a piece of history you have here, in the photo itself and in your journaling. You've showcased it nicely, I like the flourish - elegant, but rough, and the "hope" tag is perfect.
    Wonderful photo and the little embellishment over it reminds me of a roof to protect the little family. Great layout!
    Lovely photo and layout. I really like the black and white with the soft backgrounds you used.
