8 months

I've seen this sketch used by several of my fellow DT at lasting memories and thought I'd give it a go.
You can find the months artful design sketch challenge here

Here's my take on the sketch:
I'm working on my dad's photo album and these pics are of him and his mom
I love the basic grey Piccadilly 6X6 pad that I got from A2Z scrapbook.  It reminds me of old time wall paper.  Perfect for pictures from the 1940's.

Just wish I could have got the frame on the smaller photo to be a closer match to the original border on the full size photo.  Wow have photos changed

  2. Beautiful layout Haven and how cool to have those old photos to scrap!!
