Granny's Photo album

This month's Chestnut Theme Challenge at
For about the past year, I've been working on scrapbooking all of my late mother's  photos, some of them dating back to the late 1800's.
I will NOT however, bore you with any of that.
I'll bore you with something else.
The last year of her life my Mom (and my daughter's Grandma) lived in a Retirement Home.  Like so many older folks (myself included), she enjoyed reminiscing about the 
"Good Old Days".
So I copied some of her pics and made her a little album to look at whenever she felt like it.
 In my own defense, I would like to mention that I made this 
album when I was just learning to scrapbook.

So you see, this REALLY IS Granny's Photo Album!!

Do you remember the days when scrapbooking was all about 
oval and circle cutters, stickers and fancy scissors?
We've come a long way baby.

But she loved it.

Thanks for stopping by!
