Today I have a heritage layout linking three generations of mothers in my family, all of them pictured with their babies. I'm quite happy with how this turned out. I love how each one of us has that same look on her face, all of us gazing adoringly upon our baby daughters:
The first photo (top) is my mother holding yours truly (me!) 'way 'way back, long time ago in Montreal - back when men wore fedoras and women wore shirtwaist dresses and peplum jackets.
Second photo (centre R) shows me as a new mother with my daughter in 1979. Third photo (bottom L) shows that same beautiful daughter of mine with her new baby this autumn.
I thought this quotation summed it all up" "Flowers have the sun, babies have their mothers."I used the silken, soft-hued Pion papers here (Studio of Memories collection) and added a glimmer-misted doily, some Glitz What-nots, and some Webster's Pages trims. The blue flower and the mirrored bird-cage are from Prima:
This layout was a gift to my daughter at Christmas. Even though my daughter never got to meet her grandmother, I believe that connection can be made through looking at the heritage photos in our possession.
Shining a light on the generations was my whole motivation for scrapbooking in the first place. I am the "keeper of the story" in our family. These heritage layouts are important to me to help keep those generational links alive for the future.
