Layouts, Scrapbooking

My grandparents

When I was in Norway last month my grandmother dug out some old photos for me to scan and scrapbook, and I found some really great ones. I love this one of her and my grandfather from the first year they met – I had never even seen a photo of my grandfather as a young man before! I called grandma a couple of weeks ago to find out more about the photo, and she told me about how they first met in a bakery in Larvik, Norway during the war.

(Sorry about the crappy scan – I’ll have to try to take a photo of it tomorrow.)

(I just noticed it’s 2:45 am. Oops.)


…and as if the photos themselves weren’t cool enough, look at the sleeve they came in!



For the non-Norwegians out there, this is written in hilariously old-fashioned Norwegian and means something like:

“Only when the photographs have been glued into an album, may you enjoy them properly.”

Indeed! :D

    Så utrolig koselig side, og kjempeflott dokumentert!
    Morsomt å se den posen bildene kom i også, men får sånn nostalgisk følelse… ;)
