Spradlin Family - 1948 and Mini Album Page ~ Practical Scrappers

Please see next post for my Sketch Along Tuesday - Frosted Designs Layout!!

(I had to make a few changes on this one... My cousin emailed me this morning and told me this was in 1948 and not 1947...  She and my mom were like sisters and just a few years apart.  She also said she has a newspaper clipping about the photo and it has the date on it..  She is going to email it to me...  I can't wait to get it and include it in the pocket!!!  WOW talk about a treasure!!  Thank you sooooo much, Almeta!!!)

Hello, It's me again!! I have a couple more things to share with you today..  This time it's for the Practical Scrappers Cameos and Silhouettes reveal..  
The first one is a layout I did of my Mother's family back in 1948..  My mother was only 13 years old,  she was the youngest of 13 children.  In this photo are my Mother's parents (my Grandparents), some of her 12 siblings and some of their spouses, Billy, a boy that my Grandparents took in to raise, and some of her nieces and nephews..  There were 13 children in all that reached adulthood, and 3 died at either birth or within the first year...  My Grandparents had a total of 56 grandchildren, which included 2 step-grandchildren, and 3 that died young...  WOW, that's a lot of grand kids... 
I haven't really scrapped my Mom's side of the family, we didn't live close to any of her relatives and only visited once a year, so I don't really know them as well as I do my Dad's side..  But I am slowly meeting more of them on Facebook which I am so excited about and I hope to meet a lot more!!!
 Okay on with the details here....
Here are a few close ups...
This is my mother.. you can see that there is a tag behind her photo that has the family history on it...  The light blue layer is a piece of scrap that I dry embossed and then brushed with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distressing Ink, few La Patite 3-D Butterflies, a portion of a string of pearls, some Prima Say It In Pearls and a portion of the crochet doily...

Here is the Tim Holtz idea-ology ~ Ornate Plate, another La Patite 3-D Butterfly Sticker, more of the hand crochet doily, part of the MS Deco Fan corner punched circle, Prima Flower, and Cameo....

Some Prima Flowers, Decoractive Button, Prima Say In In Pearls, and Basic Grey Chipboard Bird...
