And More Gluebook Pages

Here are two more pages that will be included in special keepsake booklets I am making for Christmas presents.

The frame around my grandmother's picture is from The Sum of all Crafts blog. No digital work here....all done by the snip and cut method.

I'll have to say that I cheated a little bit here and used the beautiful papers from Graphic 45's Le' Romantique collection. The photo is of my maternal grandparents and is dated 1921.

What is a gluebook? You can find out more here.

Love this blog, Sarah! I had never heard of a glue book, but have done a lot of them over the years.

Thanks for visiting my blog today! You were right about Mabel Strickland. I found her later today after I did the post.
