7Gypsies book covers

 Here is something I had made a while back and I just now am posting a photo of it. I made this using 7Gypsies book covers I had purchased and finlay got around to making something with them. Its a couple of original photos of my great grandmother and great great grandmother and the little boy in it is my great uncle. They are from my Moms side and I thought this was perfect to display them. I used what I had here in my stash a little of K&CO, Prima ,some old lace from my Grandmas stash and some metal corners from 7Gypsie. I Will always treasure the photos because its the only one I have of my great great grandmother.  Just knowing this is where it all started. Family is such a big part of who we are and where we came from!


Enjoy the rest of your Saturday and thanks again for visiting!

I have the same 7gypsies book covers, but it never occurred to me to layer them this way!. Great vintage look to one of a kind photo.
