This is the second page for my great grandparents layout. The scanner made the photos look really yellow but they're not actually. I used non SU brown cardstock and did not have ink to match so
Journalling reads:William and Pearl MacLellan – my Great Grandparents. They were married June 24, 1919.

I was almost 1 year old when my great-grandfather died so I don’t remember him at all. I do remember “Nanny”. Before starting school I would go to her house where my father’s Aunt Marion would baby-sit me every that my mother taught school.

This is one of my favorites of all you've posted, the colors, tag title and embellishments are perfect for the vintage feel. I have some heritage pages to do and keep putting them aside, but after seeing some of your wonderful I just may get them done one of these days!
