A Promise Kept

I promised myself that THIS year I would do some scrapbook pages of vintage family photos. I couldn't think of a better one to start with than this image of my Mother as a young girl. I'm sure this was before she was married. It was a little bit tricky to work with because when I printed the photo it had a pinkish cast to it. All brown and tans were too dead and I finally hit on bringing in some rusts and peaches. I'm very happy with it, as this type of work is not my forte but I hope to get better at it. I used lots of Tim Holtz paper and charms, some bling, K&Co. embellishments and some purchased as well as handmade flowers, antique buttons, etc. Be sure to click on the pictures to see the detail up close and personal. My Mom has been gone since 1987 but I miss her more than ever.
