Four Generations


I've been wanting to scrap this picture for a long time.   Today it finally went together just the way I wanted it.   I wanted an old vintage feel to it and I thought I could make the May 15th sketch at
"STUCK ?! SKETCHES"  work for it buy using doilies with the sketch.   But then I got really lucky when I started looking through a stack on single sheets of paper from individual buys or odds and ends from collections.   I really was looking for something to work for the piece behind my picture and I found this hounds tooth piece and right below it was the single sheet of this vintage look paper with the circle.  I knew I could make it work with the sketch and have it all come out.

I'm guessing I was maybe 3 in this picture which would make it 1954 and I'm with my Mom, her Dad and his Mom.   Making it 4 generations.   I'm so happy I have this picture and finally made a layout with it.   I'm pleased with them both.

Here is the sketch and the link to  "STUCK ?! SKETCHES"
