My Newest Kit - Family Traditions

Good morning, everyone! Busy weekend planned here with a visit from my father in law. He's such a NICE man and really enjoy having him. But before I start the cooking and panic housecleaning LOL I wanted to share a scraplet made with my newest kit, Family Traditions. Those of you that know me are aware that HERITAGE kits are my all-time favorites, and genealogy is my second love. Throughout the years, I have managed to trace my Watson side to my gggrandfather, James Watson. Family tradition says he "came from Scotland", but research leads us to believe it was actually HIS father that arrived here sometime around 1750. You know all those polls that say "Who would you like to have dinner with?" Well, for me it would be JAMES WATSON. Oh! The questions I would ask him, and I would savor every little piece of that conversation!

This is one reason I love scrapbooking. I am hoping future generations will enjoy my layouts made with our precious family photos. Some of the photos are not good quality, but they are my treasures anyway. Nothing gives me goosebumps and brings tears to my eyes to come across one, or to find bits of information about my Watson line on the internet.

I created Family Traditions in rich shades of gold and red. I hope you find it useful for scrapping your heritage photos, and I would SO love to see any layouts you have done with it! To help you get started, here is my first layout done with it. This is my grandfather and grandmother, Audie and Agnes Watson. The partial photo is of their son, my father, Guy Watson. You can find Family Traditions HERE at One Single Seed.

And by the way, if you haven't visited Treasures to Scrap lately, you will find EVERYTHING is new, including the name! It is now One Single Seed. Mosey on over and check out the BEAUTIFUL new site. The Grand Opening will be coming up VERY soon with sales and fun challenges! It's all very exciting and you won't wanna miss it!

I hope you'll visit again next week when I have Scraplet #2 for your downloading pleasure! Have a GREAT weekend, everyone!
