Life Moments Chat_Siblings
I really enjoyed the chat and challenge, Shannon! Thank you! And thank you, also, to Jen and Elisha for the beautiful new collections! You are both so talented!
I was pretty happy to see how well the background papers matched the clothing John and I are wearing in this 1954 Olan Mills photo. (The stripes in John's shirt match the bg blue paper...I still remember that shirt!) I didn't do anything to the photo...it has some spotty red areas but I wanted to keep it original. Also, I used my new Flip Pal Scanner to scan the photo through the plastic stuck to it in the old album. It worked great! Four scans (and I don't think I kept them perfectly aligned) on this 8X10 picture under plastic and the built in software automatically "stitched" the sections together. This opens up a lot of possibilities for me! Thanks, Scrap Girls!
