So many possibilities with this one ~ just let your imagination go wild.... I thought it was a perfect sketch for a vintage layout, so that's what I went with and I really love the way this one came out... The photo is of my Great Grandparents, which I never knew.. My Great Grandfather died before my Granddad was even born and by Great Grandmother died before I was born.. I found this wonderful photo in my Grandmother's photo album which I inherited after she died.. (Don't tell my sister and brothers ~ but hey, it stayed in my Grandmother's house for 4 years after she died, and since I live the furthest away and they didn't take it, I did this last summer when I went back home!!) She has some fabulous old family photos, some in pretty good shape and some that aren't, but they all mean so much to me.. And I am so happy to keep them for the next generation!!!
Here's my take on Diana's wonderful sketch!!
And here are a few close-ups
Here is a close up of a lacy frame that I got when I went to the Creative Keepsakes Convention held in San Marcos this last September.

This was cut with the Tim Holtz, Alterations Baroque Sizzix Die and I printed the names off of the computer... Added a Rub-on some brads and sponged around the edges... and some of the black pearls..
