QB5 Zine is Home

 This is a zine round robin swap we've worked on all of 2012! 
 We each started a zine on a topic we enjoy and passed it on to the others to work in...

They all arrived home this past week...

Mine was "Grandma's Photos".
(more here when I first sent it out)

Below is some of Carole's work...
she wrote a war time story with a photo attached...
She's an accomplished writer...

 Below is a spread done by Margaret....
beautiful colors and a Swiss touch... which I adore...
 Patty did the spread below...
.which also speaks to cloning mishaps.....
We do have a sense of humor in these swaps.....
 Negatives as a great edge to a page.....
 Another spread by Patty...........  love the fan deck of negatives..
and the bag on the left with a great
negative of someone that appears to be in a hospital bed.
 ... and it has this great metal Kodak clip ---
 and I'm quite sure this page is Patty's, too.....
possible QB5ERS in a prior lifetime....
 This is Nathalie's gorgeous page....
old negative strips woven into a great page with lace, ribbon, snaps and a photo of mother & child.....
 Here are some of the black and white pictures that came back......
 we traded photos...

 The zine standing

 
The front of my zine..
which I did
before I mailed it.

That's a huge accomplishment for me!

This cover image is of my mother's family.
My mother is the pretty one in the white blouse on her knees...
2nd row....
She was in her early teens.

She scratched out her brother-in-law from the photo
as he caused the death of her father not long after
that picture was taken....

Grandma's photos tell lots of stories...

oh oh oh
such fun to see your zine completed
it was a great theme ... I started and couldn't stop LOL

I did add some touches to that one page...the crepe paper flower frill was from a 1930's memory book that a friend shared with me...seemed perfect for your book

Everyone was so creative ... always inspiring

What a great project. You must enjoy looking at all the wonderful details your partners in creativity put into your zine.

How fun is this! I am always amazed at the quality of the QBs workmanship -- I shouldn't be, of course, for they never disappoint. But what a treasure to cherish!
