    I took a picture of this photo, which was displayed on a board at my husbands Grandmas funeral. Hard to get rid of all the shadows and weird reflections before snapping the photo, but I got it! This kit was perfect for this photo!

    Glad you like the challenge! Yay for the iPhone, I took a picture of an old prom photo just to post to instagram and I was surprised at how well it came out.

    A picture of my dad from the 60's. He really was a cowboy and didn't just dress like one :) He worked on ranches in AZ, CO and UT.

    This is an easy challenge for me as I am desperately getting pages created about old vacations .... back in the 70s. Hopefully I will return soon with a page for this challenge.

    I have scanned some of our older photos. I just need to make time to do more of them and the heritage ones we have.
    Photos of my youngest dd in 1988.

    I don't have access to OLD photos because we are not living close to home and most of that is in storage - but I did have some photos that my daughter's school gave us as paper copies, and I had actually scanned them a few months back, but never got around to using so - perfect!

    A perfect challenge for what I am feeling right now. My Grandma died a week ago, Wednesday, and my Grandfather died a year ago, Friday. This is them heading out on their honeymoon. [​IMG]

    Another thought I should add to my journaling: The year this photo was taken was the year I had typing class too, which has turned out to be one of the most useful classes I ever took.
