Family

I only have a matter of minutes to link up to Stuck?
Talk about cutting it fine!
Earlier in the week I started this page...2 attempts in the bin, 3rd time lucky. Sometimes what you have in mind, does not come together on paper.
The sketch
  
This is a very old photo of my grandparents and great grandparents. I need to call my mum to find out what year it was taken...then I'll add it to the page.  Originally I had the title 'family' more to the left, but then  noticed the vintage style camera my grandmother is holding, I did not want to cover it up, so I centered the title over the photo.

I've tried to keep the page a little vintage looking with the colours, crochet doilies and a touch of gold. The large banner is embossed for added texture.

Happy March
