Evayleen ~ Stuck On U Sketches

Hi everyone!!!   I hope you're staying cool this summer...  So far this summer we've only had 26 days of over 100 degrees, whereas last year at this time we already had over 60 days.   I don't mind the heat if we could only get a little rain!!!!  Okay enough whining!!!  Let's get on with today's wonderful sketch challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches...  We have another great sketch from co-leader Leah Schaeffer... 

Here it is...

For this layout I decided to scrap a photo of my MIL Evayleen.  The photo was taken in Colorado some time in the late 1950s.  My husband's brother has the original and scanned it to me.. So I need to get the date off the of original next time we see him...

Here are a few close ups...
