I joined the bandwagon!

Lately I have been noticing some fantastic walls of family pictures, so I thought it was time to complete mine and show you all what I have done!



I decided I wanted to do all black and white photos. Since my mother passed away I received several great pictures of her that I wanted to showcase. I even got the original wedding pictures of my husbands grandparents and his parents.



This is a picture of my mom when she was a store model in Ohio! I took some black and white scrapbook paper to mat it, isn't it so great!



This is a collage of my mother. There is a picture of her with Santa, 1st communion, cowgirl, picture with the Easter bunny and the middle one is of her college graduation picture! On the bottom far left is a picture of my grandparents as they are leaving the church after their wedding. My grandmother has since past but my grandfather is 94. I swear he is going to live well past 100!



This is my husband's grandparents wedding picture.



My mother in-law finally gave me one of my favorite pictures of her when they got married, so glam!



These are James' little baby feet!



This is one of my favorite's of James, he would just die if he knew I put this on here!



And last but not least who can pass up a naked booty picture? This is Claire and I just love them!

Enjoy!

Hi Megan
How gorgeous this collage of your mother's photos!! My mum died when I was young so I have a few framed but have many more I should do something with... but not many of her childhood as you have!! The images with Santa and that great big bunny are gorgeous.. I thought it was a big mouse!! haha Great job.. I'm sure you will find a lot of pleasure looking at these...

Thanks for your great comment.. I love the Italian language too.. I went to language school in Italy for 2 weeks but have forgotten most of it now... Portofino is really for the rich and famous!! but it was nice to look around for the day... Say Buongiorno to you Grandfather for me.. xx Julie
