Mum and Dad

A treasured find amongst the negatives in a box. How handsome you both look. I love Dad’s smile and the devilish look in his eye. Mom is beautiful with the light net veil and flower in her hair. I don’t remember Dad ever publicly showing affection toward Mum, and yet, here he is, with his hand around her waist.
I guess this photo was taken at a wedding in the 1950’s. Such opposites- Dad didn’t drink or dance and Mum enjoyed a good party. I wonder if you both had a good time?

    Such a pretty background to use with your heirloom photo. I love how you made it look like the corners of the photo are tucked behind the paper.

    This is so pretty! I love the corner embellishment cluster and the tilted photo.

    Lovely journaling and awesome photo.   You created a treasure with your special find.  Wonderful page. :)

    This is a lovely layout for that treasured photo. The pressed flowers are the perfect embellishments for a photo from that time period. Love the doilies and the heart charm. I really like how the photo is tucked into the paper. The journaling is essential and so interesting. Your parents sound a lot like mine - opposites attract, I guess. Wonderful page!
