Made a paper bag book for a family Thanksgiving Day reunion using old photos of grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins & me!
Family at the reunion bring little items to bid on in a silent auction to collect money to maintain the family gravesites. Since I don't live in the same state as the family, I made this early & sent it as my contribution to the auction. I made a few pages using just digital scrapbooking (FUN!), but the rest I used SU stamps and embellishments. I have lots of pull outs and a page in which a fold-out opens to show 3 more photos. My little tag at the end shows me at 2 years old.

Turns out there was a bit of a snow storm in PA on Thanksgiving so apparently some relatives decided not to venture out to the reunion. A few of my aunts were there and they spent the time identifying everyone in the pics. My mother bought a bunch of tickets and dropped them into the bidding bag and ended up winning the mini-album. She gave it to my niece who had been admiring it the night before. So it's still in the immediate family!
