One of the recent challenges at The Inspired Scrapper was "Focus on Family." I thought alot about this challenge because the primary reason for me to start scrapbooking was to capture the stories of my family. This challenge made me examine why I scrapbooked. I realized that I was definitely focussing on my family, telling the good and the not-so-good but I also realized I don't scrapbook much about me or my ancestors. Then I realized I had a precious photo of Jean, my father in law, my girls' grandfather when he was a boy. I knew instantly it was the perfect photo for the challenge.
The layout is below.
