FCCB Challenge #62 - Remember This

Happy Memorial Day!  I love the appreciation everyone gives to our military on this day.  For my family, this is a day to remember the 21 years of military service my husband gave and the 5 years that I put in as well as part of the U.S. Army.

FCCB's challenge this week fit in perfectly with the heritage album I've been working on.  I just finished this page on my father-in-law's grandfather.  I used Graphic 45 paper with the the fellows in the car and the "Proper Gentlemen" title.  

I used images from the Heritage cartridge for his name label and brown brads around his picture.

The original picture is a 2x4 which I scanned and enlarged to 5x7.  I used Picnic to add a sepia tone to the picture.  I love his handlebar mustache!

Unfortunately, I can't add much journaling because I don't have much information on him, but his face will live on through the memories of the scrapbook I'm making.  And that's what's best about this great addiction (or hobby) that we all do!

Thanks for looking.

  4. What a wonderful page. The paper is fantastic! The brads around the photo are such a good touch too. They really add to the antique look of the page.
