Treasured Memories - CraftOnline Creative Team

I have been exploring my family history this year and even though I scrapped treasured photos of my Grandfather years ago that album was a gift for my elderly Uncle so I haven't scrapped them for myself yet.  This year I have been working through getting photos of Grandad scrapped.

Grandad traveled overseas as so man young men of his generation did to serve with the Allied forces in World War 1, he was sent to France.  I won't go into a lot of detail here but he fell in love with a lovely French Lady and they got married, she sadly passed away when their children were young and eventually Grandad and my Grandma fell in love and married.

Today's project I am scrapping one of only 2 photos of Grandad with his first wife Madeleine, I am unsure when it was taken but I put their wedding date on the layout as I thought it was important to record that on there.

So check out my process video to see how this layout came together and why I chose the products I chose for this project.
