I wan't sure which gallery to post this LO to and since most of the products I used are from this month's club collection I finally decided to post it here. One reason I started digital scrapbooking was to create heritage LOs that I could share with family members. I've done a few LOs that I consider to be "heritage" but this is may be my first official heritage LO. I've been working on it all week. It is definitly one that changed alot from the original I started with. I think I wanted it to be perfect since it is the ONLY photo I have ever seen of my Great Grandmother. It is so special to me and I even found myself crying several times while working on it.
The journaling reads:
"Christina Elizabeth Nelson is my Great Grandmother. She died at the young age of 26 after giving birth to my maternal Grandmother, her only child. My Grandmother never knew her mother and I wonder how different her life would have been if her mother had lived. Her father married again and had 2 additional daughters. My Grandmother was raised by a stepmother and she lived a real Cinderella story. Any time she talked about her stepsisters she would tear up and I could tell how difficult it was for her to talk about.
This is the only photo of I have of my Great Grandmother. She is the in the front row on the left. I have no idea who the other young women are. I treasure this photo of her as a young woman."
