Whatever your heirloom, I suggest adding it to your scrapbook. The picture above is a quilt given to me by my grandmother. My great-grandmother did the blocks, and sometime after she passed away my grandmother found them. She pieced them together and quilted them. After my husband, and I were married, she gave us the quilt as a gift. The scrapbook page was my way of recording the dates and times of when this was made, and my feelings on receiving it from my grandmother. This is just a simple scrapbook page, there are no cute smiles to shine out to the viewer, but the smiles it holds are my own.
My family heirloom turned to scrap, and I love it! ~Happy Scrapping!
