From whence I came and The nose has it

52 in 10 logo smaller a year long challenge set by Dolly 
I am so enjoying this challenge, I know that we are only six weeks into it but so far every week the challenge has been great and indeed challenging.
This week we are looking back at our family tree and seeing where our habits, looks and traits come from.
So without further ado here are my two pages.
From whence I came
as the journalling is a little difficult to read because of the slant here it is.
Family is that strange body that makes us who we are that shapes our minds and gives us identity.
Our traits and habits are often found to have been passed down to us through more than one generationThe nose has it

A really gorgeous DLO Mary - I love how you have the quill writing the journalling on the first LO, its really effective and clever :)

Love the new look you have given to your blog too :)

Your blog is looking great Mary, sorry not visited for a while. You've been very busy with your LOs too, love the delicate colours you've used in the DLO.

Yes, I like this too. I think your biblical "begat" is great - like a quote from Genesis or St.John!

Noses run in my family too (hee hee!).
J has my face and ear shape and thick hair like me. He has his dad's eye shape, but my eye colour, and his hair is dark like D's as well.
I think he's going to end up with a nose like his grandma and my sister, but it's hard to tell just yet.
It's such fun spotting all the family resemblances.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
