A layout with a story.

My dad's brother, Brian, sadly died last year and I learned many things about my Dad's childhood when Brian's obituary was read. I was totally unaware of manny of the details; like my own Grandfather being invalided out of the service during World War 2 after suffering a fractured skull.

Their childhood was difficult and I decided to include some of the details included in Brian' obituary in this scrapbook page.  For me, this is what scrapbooking is about.  Recording those stories that could be forgotten if they are not written down.

The papers are from First Edition by Trimcraft, a travel set.

I liked their vintage feel to go with this photo of dad and Brian taken in the 1970s.
