I used a G45 small print in a soft brownish maroon as the background, punched out frames which I outlined with gold Liquid Pearls, some pictures got a bit of colour with an alcohol marker, each got a mulberry paper rose and other bits from my stash. I incorporated names and dates where they were noted on the back of the CDVs. Several really were from the same family.
"1862 - Mrs. French with infant #1. She never looked so rested again."
"1862 - Baby Bessie French walking at barely 9 months old! Mrs. French has just produced a set of twin brothers! Busy household day and night."
"1878 - Dressed up and dangerous! Those French boys and their pranks. They just had no boundaries."
"Even as a baby, Hortense had a way of looking at you. A look that made you feel uncomfortable. hortense lived a long and solitary life."
"1865 - Pansy just won her first certificate for writing. Mother was so pleased. Pansy got new blue hair ribbons."
