Harriet Bilderback, c. 1880

Harriet Bilderback, c. 1880

My 3rd- or 4th-great grandfather married three times in five years. His first two wives each died shortly after marrying -- the times were hard on women and I often wonder if they died of disease or childbirth or what . . . Harriet was his third wife and the one who bore all his children. I inherited this badly damaged photo of her from my grandma, and I am happy to sing the praises of the geniuses at Adobe who gave me the tools to restore it.

Inspired by Amanda Sok's The Finer Things.


    Lovely layout! Karen
    That is indeed a precious photo, and you have scrapped it beautifully! Love all the layers and embellishments, beautiful colors, perfect for a heritage layout.
    This looks like the photo never had anything wrong with it. You did a great job of restoring. This LO came out beautifully. Love all the embellishments and the placement of them.
    Great heritage page. Just love all the embellishments and the LO.
    Bobbi Jo - this is an AMAZING LO. Never having seen the original photo that you fixed, I think you've done a wonderful job on this. The embellishments just fit together and how you've placed them makes the whole LO come together. What a wonderful job you've done and a moving tribute to your g-g-g-grandmother.
    Bobbi Jo, this is fantastic, I love your photo and the amazing layering of the papers and embellishments you've used. It's so beautiful!
    Love the papers & all the blending. The restored photo really shines & I think you have set it off perfectly with the embellies you selected. Great work, I really struggle with heritage layouts so I admire those who can do them with such style. :)
    This is beautifully done! Isn't it rewarding when you get a bad photo and can restore it to this. Great piece of work.
    This is Lovely Bobbie! I love how you put this legacy layout to work nicely with all the elements.
    This is just beautiful - a terrific restoration job - and a lovely way to remember her - love these colors and embellishments
