Three Brothers

It seems ages since I last played along with Gingersnap Creations but with this being their last month, I just had to make the effort to join in.

I've made a little hanging for Granny's Photo Album Challenge.



The cheeky chap in the middle is my grandfather Peter, along with his brothers Adam and George.  Their mother died in June 1909, two weeks before Peter turned 6 and we think this photo may actually have been the day of their mother's funeral. They're certainly dressed in their "Sunday Best". Adam and George both emigrated to Canada but Peter remained in Scotland.

Thanks for paying me a wee visit.

Hi Suze. They all looked like they were cheeky chappies. I always envy people who have family photographs. Beautiful job on this. It looks fabulous. Love the layout and the tartan backing.

What a beautiful piece Suze. I felt so sad when I read that their mother died just before Peter was 6. I must have been a real blow for them all. Vicky x

How unusual, but what great thinking, to use a piece of tartan behind the photos for this delightful wall hanging. Brilliant, really like this Suze.
Hope you do join in with us at Artful Times, would love to see you there.
Now to investigate what you are on about with Gingersnap - are they closing? Hope not.
Hugs, Neet x
