I did it! This is my 2nd post of the night, and I am so excited! I am here a 2nd time because I finished my page for one of the challenges going on at Another Freakin' Scrappy Challenge-Grandparents or generations. There's still time to play!
My sister helped me to get a couple of the pictures. She even apologized for how they scanned over and offered to help fix them in Photoshop. But I said no. The colors and "textures" of the photos are genuine to the time period. These look better than some I had taken with a 110 that's for sure! LOL!
Ok so here is my Nana and Papa page. These are my grandparents on my mom's side. The 2 pictures on the right were taken in the 1970s I think and the Polaroid was taken April 22, 1984. And that's my handwriting when I was a kid!
Here is a close up of my Nana. I decided not to crop the photos so that a sense of time could be felt. Wood paneling and maybe even that mirror are of things of a different era. I wanted to appreciate that too.
Here's a close up so you can read the journaling. That's my daddy with Papa :)
Here's a picture I need to find out more about! I don't know who took this picture. The journaling says: If you start with my Nana and go clockwise: Papa, Aunt Nita, Cousin Shireen, Cousin, Cousin Richard (I think), Aunt Kathy, and a baby I'm not sure who the baby is but I don't think it's me. I think it might be my cousin Katina but I don't know. If I worked for CSI I could read the calendar but my skills are limited. LOL! ;)
Oh and these glass flowers...no they just look like glass! My wonderful hubby got me a Ranger Melting Pot for Christmas! I saw Tim Holtz dip these little Prima flowers into the UTEE and the were like instant glass flowers so that's one of the first things I did last night when I was playing with it! These are those little silk flowers that I pulled off of the stem. I thought they went well here.
