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.

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.

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.

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.

What a fabulous photo and layout. That background is just gorgeous and it just goes so well with the photo. Love the elements and cluster that you chose and how you tied the photo down with the lovely blue ribbon. Great layout.

So glad this popped back up...don't know how I missed it! I think it may be my favorite of your heritage pages yet- into my favorites. You've done an amazingly wonderful restoration of this fabulous photo- wow! I love your embellishment choices and how perfect is that photo tear here?! You have to frame and hang this!
