Cristal and Cindy, I was reading an article online about not having heritage pictures and you can still scrap about your grandparents. You can put information you know about them on your page and also add embellishments from their time period. You are both creative enough to do this :).

I have done that also with memories of my grandmother. Information is very important to keep. Use a picture of an area, a recipe, anything that sparks a memory of one of them.

I have several recipes from my Jewish grandmother. I put them into a Family recipe book. When I put in one of her recipes, I would write down what remembered about her.

Well, ladies. Less start this challenge today. The rules are to have fun. The entries have to be new as of today and to scrap a grandparent. It can be a one or two page LO and of any size. If you use a technique, please tell us about it so we can learn it. The entries will be due at the end of May. I will have several judges picking out the winner which I will send a prize to.

Get ready! Get set! Go!!!!

I have a pic of my great grandmother holding ,my oldest child. she passed away this winter so I think I will dig that one out. was taken 13 years ago so it's not blk and white. not that that matters I just think seppia and blk,white with heritage....

I have a heritage layout question. What do you journal about if you don't know anything about the photo like where they were, when the photos were taken, etc. I have a lot of old photos and all I can say about them is who they are (some I don't even know everyone who's in them).

I would think - make a pretty page and just title with what you know - if you can't journal - then just make the picture (s) speak for themselves

I would like to give this a try. My MIL gave pictures of her grandparents on their wedding day- oddly they are not together in one pic- it is 2 seperate pics! We don't know dates or anything so it is difficult, but I love the pics and look forward to scrapping them.

Is this still open? I would love to do this. Count me in. When does this have to be done, any set time? I'll start on mine this weekend. Also do you upload here or in LO's?

Got a question about the SAS Mem'day contest. If you do a LO where do you upload it. I clicked on the URL but I didn't see where it said upload or anything. It wasn't like the LO section here. So how do you do it when the you get your photo's and do your LO and ready to post?

hey Cheryl I think you can do this challenge at any time. not 100% um you can upload to your gallery and then copy the BB code to a post here.

The Mem'day I'm not sure but I think he'll have a section open Memorial day to post your LO's.

I have to agree with Jannell just do as much as you can find out what you can thru realtives I have alot of older pictures of my great grandmother and aunt & uncles but don't know much about them so If I decided to do them they will probably just have there names and what they were to me

Cheryl this is the way I do it
BB code click to highlight then right click hit copy go to community go to layouts post new thread right click paste it title & description then submit thread
Good Luck It took me awhile to learn this one
