ScrapTiffany Monday - Black & White Photos

This week at ScrapTiffany the design team challenge was to use black and white photos in our projects.  I have had this photo of my Grandma and Dad for some time.  I recently had my old photos scanned and this one was restored to make it more beautiful.  I have been wanting to do a layout with this for some time.

My Dad is about 2 in this picture. Both of my boys have looked almost exactly like my dad in this picture at one time, and we definitely can see where they get their eyes from. My brother and I have all boys, for a total of 5 between us. My sister recently remarked how all 5 of the boys look like our Dad.




I also love this picture of my Grandma.  She is so young and looks so happy, my Dad was the youngest of her 3 boys. I knew I had been holding onto this Daisy D's product for something.  I like the vinage'y", aged, boyish  papers for this photo.  The paper edges were distressed with my fingernail (I know a real technical tool).

What a beautiful photo. You really have some amazing vintage photos of your family. And this layout is fabulous. I love the distress that goes along with the vintage and the playful bright colors for contrast.
