Scrapbook Tag

When I saw the theme for Louise's challenge on Kardkrazy I was really pleased! I have not done a lot of scrapbooking but what I have done is all with old family photos.  The two people on my tag are my grandparents, Lucy and Edward. The baby in the pram is my Aunt Kathleen. The old postcard was sent by them to my grandmother's grandmother,  Eliza Marwood who brought up my grandmother after her own mother  died.The top photo of them in the car is the front of the postcard, seems it was so easy in those days to get a postcard made with your own photograph on it. The sad thing is that Lucy was dead at the age of 30,leaving 3 little children behind.
