View Full Version : Lasting Legacy July 2012
07-01-2012, 05:04 PM
Welcome to the inaugural month of the Lasting Legacy Challenge! Katey Green, Diana Burton, and I will be your guides as we document your heritage and family history. Each month, one of us will focus on a different aspect of heritage scrapping. Pull up your genealogy, your old photos, and prepare to meet your ancestors!
In the USA this month, we are celebrating our independence. I thought it would be a good month to explore family members who served our various countries in the military. If you don't have photos, don't worry. This is all about documenting your history--with or without photos. This month, introduce us (and your descendants) to an ancestor of yours who served in the military.
Here's my layout: (http://digitalscrapbookpages.com/galleria/showphoto.php/photo/159870/title/william-walden-corry/cat/1567)
Post your layout in our Lasting Legacy gallery (http://digitalscrapbookpages.com/galleria/showgallery.php/cat/1567) and post your link back here so I can give you your posting bonus!
I've made a sampler for you to use if you wish. You can pick it up here (tinyurl.com/7h7blcj) in the store. (You are not required to use this mini, but you do need to use at least 3 papers/elements from Digitals Designers to qualify for the posting bonus.)
Also perfect for your patriotic layouts this month is my newest collection "Celebrate America! Collection (tinyurl.com/7h7blcj)". To help your pocketbook, the kit and Bundle will be on sale this month at a steeply discounted price!
Stop by Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/AmandaThordersonDesigns) and my blog (http://flamingo-amanda.blogspot.com/) for some great freebies throughout the month. Also be sure to stop by the calendar challenge which is featuring another mini from Celebrate America! Collection.

I am so pleased that we are having this challenge - genealogy is the reason I got into digital scrapbooking (to present heritage in a more interesting way)! Now to get to work!

I chose my Maternal Great Grandfather who was in the US Civil War.
He died 90 years ago today.
My apologies - I have got to quit working on scrapbook pages at 2am - My fingers just automatically typed the 1900s when most of the dates were in the 1800s. I learned something new tho - you can correct it and reload the photo and the info!

Here is my LO: Promotion! (http://digitalscrapbookpages.com/galleria/showphoto.php/photo/159940/title/promotion-21/cat/1567)
I don't really have any ancestors that I know who have served in the armed forces other than my dad. I have scrapped about him before. My good friend Maha attended the promotion of her brother this week and I thought I would honor him by scrapping their family there.

I hope this is accepted--and I realize that I put a frame with a ribbon on it, not for a man but I liked it so that's the way it is. Thank you for looking.

I did a double page for this challenge this month. Have really enjoyed all of the wonderful memory and honor pages that have been created. I've been wanting to do something with these photos of my Uncle Albert and this is just the perfect challenge to do it. Some of the photos are postcards, but I'm sure that others are ones that he or his buddies took while they were stationed there.

I'm still waiting for my dad to get the photos, scanned medals and other information together for me. I'll probably have my pages done by the end of the year ....
