A Favorite Photo


In working on my daughter's albums for graduation, I came across this photo taken at one of those "old west" studios at a local amusement park. This was taken when the girls were in 8th grade, and they're still good friends. Over the years, it's been one of my favorite photos, so I took it out of the cardboard frame where it was stored and put it on a page.

I decided to re-use a Cathy Zielske digital sketch which I've used a time or two (notably here), rather than try a shabby, technique-heavy page that would be hard for me to do well anyway! My hoarded (striped) Cosmo Cricket paper seemed to be waiting just for this photo.

Here's to a productive weekend with many more old favorites!

I can see why this is a favorite, it very cute. I like your new blog layout, very springy!

Beautiful! I love the grid design & warm colors.

BTW, you have inspired me to toy w/ my blog look. Loving the easy new Blogger template. Sure beats trying to rework the code.

Thanks, Debbie and Sarah! It's so fun to see these girls so serious, let alone decked out in the western garb!

Sarah, ITA - the template designer makes it super easy to change! Will be anxious to see what you come up with!

LOL...LOVE it! We have a family photo taken there also. I liked it so much I had my brother-in-law frame one scrapbooked version of it and I did a totally separate/different page with the same pic for our SB album.
