Scrap about an interesting/surprising/unusual event in your family's history.
My newest Heritage collection, Read All About It, was designed specifically for this work effort. There are plenty of flowers and foliage, of course, but there are also lots of ephemera, journaling cards, tags, labels and some wonderful vintage furniture & household pieces for added interest.
Here is a free page starter from Read All About It to help you get started: (just click on the preview to go to my store and put it in your shopping cart. Will only be available for appx. 30 days.)
Here are the previews and some layouts from my creative team for inspiration.
