This is the second page to my husband's heritage album and my entry for the March Heritage challenge. This is his paternal greatgrandma, Gjertrude. From the information I have, she was born on 10/18/1860 also in Vik, Sogn, Og Fjordane, Norway. Her parents were Ola and Kristensa, in the Hauglum-Kjelven LO I submitted a couple of weeks ago. She was their four child. She married my husband's greatgrandfather in about 1886. I do not have any information yet as to when they immigrated to the US, but they both passed away in New Auburn, WI. Gjertrude passed away on 4/18/1942. I'm not sure if Gjertrude immigrated with her mother at the same time or if she came later on with her husband. I have so limited information right now with John's heritage, but I am hoping that will change.
I have to give a shout out to Lauri D for the inspiration to design this LO as I did. I love how she did her LO entitled “1940's U.S. Dept of State” that I wanted to try my own version in heritage style. Lauri also gave me the awesome lamp post. Thanks Sweetie!!
I used a lot of techniques on this LO. I'm particularly fond of the upper cluster at the “collar”. I cannot remember where or when I got the lace, but its very large and extremely pretty. I cut out this specific pattern and used stickles to accent the flowers. The fabric rosette is my own creation. The gem is a “toy” given to me by my awesome MIL. I was also very excited that I got use my NEW CRICUT CARTRIDGE, Heritage. I'm drooling over all the images and am excited to try them all. The butterfly is from LisaGregory's blog spot.
