mini album for my uncle

Post by Guest on Mon 17 Nov 2008 - 23:04

I'm so pleased to have finished this so thought I'd show you a few pages from it, it's not perfect but I'm pleased with it as I hope my uncle will be when he sees it.

Front Cover



This is where I ask for members help, I couldn't fit them all in but a good lot of them.


A bit of nostalgia tv and a list of celebrities who are 65 this year.


Films & Music of 1943 behind the flap as there was a long list.


News from 1943 onwards (I wish I'd done this one as tags instead of flaps but it worked) & Ads of the 40s & 50s, messed up on the tag for this one so I've just changed it. I put the Robertsons golly in on purpose, it's not pc now but it wasn't anything racial for us just a funny character, my Mum used to collect the ornaments for us as they were cute.

One page of a few pages that I did on his home town Barrow, my Uncle isn't able to travel now so I think he'll enjoy these.


Some old photos.


Other pages I did were old photos and simple pages about his working life, Wedding and hobbies.

Oh Gill - it's smashing! I'd be thrilled and delighted to get something like this and I'm sure your uncle will be too.

Fabulous!

That's lovely Gill. Like Bobs, I would love to be given something
like that, but as the crafters, we usually have to make for others Sad

Wow, that is terrific, so hard to get a pressie for a man, but this is spot on. He and everyone who sees it will love it.

What a simply lovely gift and anyone who receives something like this just has to realise how much thought and work has gone into it. Anyone, but anyone, would be delighted with it. I know I would!!

Sure he'll be really pleased with it Gillian.
My Dad was born in Barrow and I used to go regularly to visit my grandma there.
