Old Photos

I found a new scrapbooking sketch blog, The Scrappiest, recently, and I decided to use a few of their sketches to scrap some old pictures this week. The first page is about our home, which is the home where Jim grew up. When Jim and I were engaged and looking for a home of our own, Jim's mom offered to sell us her house so she could move to an apartment with less maintenance. We took her up on her offer, and though we've made many changes to the house to make it "ours," it is the same little house where Jim has lived his entire life. I found an old picture of Jim as a little boy standing in front of our house. I took a picture of Drew standing in about the same spot, and I used the two photos on this layout. This next page is about Drew as a baby, during the few short months of his life when he was actually slightly chubby. My sister, Nora, took these pictures of Drew wearing some boots that she got for him.
It was fun to scrap some older photos this week!
