Default NEW February Heritage THEME Challenge

Introducing a new heritage challenge here at theStudio!

The Heritage THEME Challenge. Each month we will choose a new theme to inspire and scrap heritage layouts.

For the month of February, for Sweethearts and Valentines month, the theme for this heritage challenge will be HERITAGE WEDDINGS!

So pick out an "older" wedding photo or two and scrap for the Heritage Theme Challenge! When finished, post your lovely heritage wedding layout in the Heritage Theme Challenge Gallery!

I've scrapped a wedding photo of my mother with her sisters. I'm going to try to scrap another of her and dad next. So grab that old photo box and come and play!!!


*UPDATE*
Here's my dad with mom since it is a "sweetheart" month and this was their wedding, not the "sisters."
Keep those pages coming!

How fun! So you had a Mary Poppins wedding or just a photo that looked like a scene from Mary Poppins? My children and I, and especially my dh love Mary Poppins. One of our favorite activities we do together is watching it.

I had actually just completed a 5x7 of my Mom & step-dad's wedding photo a few days ago. Tried uploading and it says "the catagory I chose to upload in can't contain photos" I am new to this and would appreciate any feedback as to what I am doing wrong

It wasn't working for me either. Trying to get the bugs worked out. But our lovely, Tracy aka Ambowife Designs has fixed it for us. Here's your gallery for the Heritage Theme Challenge!

Sorry about that. We'll get this figured out and going smoothly soon!

Thanks so much! I hope a 5x7 is okay. A short story here The only photos of my Mom & stepdad's wedding were in slides. She no longer has a projector to view them & hadn't seen the pics in over 30 years. I was able to scan the slides & print them out for her. I made this 5x7 for her just the other day. Here is my link

Here's mine
My Parents Wedding
http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio...4&limit=recent

I am so happy the heritage challenges are resuming. Tis the reason I found this site _by doing a search for heritage scrapping.
My goal is to be a memory keeper for my children. It is so easy to forget this goal & digiscrap current digiphotos. But I keep thinking that my children & grandchildren will be scrapping these newer photos & their history will be lost if I don't record my family history.So thank you for resuming the heritage challenges. At least now at least once a month I will working on my first goal to digiscrap

These are all so wonderful!! I wish I had wedding photos of more of my ancestors. I don't have any of my grandparents on back. Plenty of other pictures though not their actual wedding. Don't you wish people always took pictures like we do today?

This is of my great grandparents, the only wedding photo my Mom has of them. LOL, guess they just didn't take a lot of photos back then or they got lost through the years. The "journaling" are copies from my grandmothers Bible

Apart from loving your page which is so beautiful, I find the picture very interesting. My Great grand parents were married in 1908, and I have some studio pictures of them, I have often wondered if these were the wedding photos, but nobody knows. Seeing your photo, makes me think that this is nore likely, as they are not in 'Wedding' regalia either. Also the 1 photo I have of his parents possibly is as well. Food for thought.
