Granny's Photo Album with Gingersnaps

Hello, this month sees the last month of Gingersnap Creations as both founding femmes, Shar and Ali are setting off on new ventures.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank both of them - I have been with the Gingers for a long time now and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thank you Shar and Ali for having faith in me and offering me my first every Design Team position and wish you every success in your new "adventures".

"Granny's Photo Album"

I have gone back to my roots in more ways than one!  One - I started off papercrafting as a scrapbooker following a trip to Florida and a scrapbook album. When I look back it was very basic but it set me off on this particular road to where I am now and; Secondly the photo is actually from my "Nanna's Photo Album".
The photo was taken in 1952 and was taken in my mum/my nanna's street during a street party to celebrate our Queen's coronation.  Sixty years later my mum is now 68-years old, my beloved nan is no longer with us and our Queen is celebrating her diamond jubilee.  I am feeling quite emotional - street parties no longer happen like they did (I remember vaguely 1977). 
The stamps I have used to create my page include:- Indigo Blu, Crafty Individuals and some old text stampsfrom EK Success.  My rosettes have been hand made and the flags have been hand drawn and then stamped.
Please check out my fellow DT gingers creations HERE and I really hope you can join us for the final journey of Gingersnaps Creations!
