Celebrating my Family

It's a new year, and as we meander a Path of Positivity, we are challenging you to Celebrate!  We will share different optional themes every month for you to celebrate!

We are starting with Celebrate Something Special About Your Family!  

What's special about my family is we all love photographs and have for many years!  I have pictures going back to the turn of the century...1900's that is!  I have no date for this photo; but I believe it to be before 1910.  The original is put away in its original photo album.  

This is my father's grandparents; Grandpa Oliver was one of my dad's favorite people.  I'm so fortunate to have this pictorial history!

For more information about this layout, please join me at the video below!

   We'd like to hear your ideas at Path of Positivity.  Come share them with us!  

Remember, you may share any sort of artistic medium over at PoP:  writing, cards, journals, scrapbooking, painting, sewing, baking, needle crafts, etc as long as it is positive!  The theme is always optional.
