So Many Years...In One Yesterday!

So Many Years...In one Yesterday

This week's challenge on 3 Clover's Thursday Challenge is to use photos on your creation. What perfect timing for me. This past week was my parents 60th anniversary and I had this card mapped out in my brain for weeks! This fun fold card has always intrigued me- so of course I finally had to jump on the band wagon and give it a try! There is a tutorial on SCS here.

I used some of my wonderful Parisian Breeze Specialty paper now retired from SU! (another sad face).
As you can see, I am the only girl child in this group of yah-hoo's! The front pic is a more current pic and the older pic is from 1961 I think! I think I might have been about 5 in the second pic! It looks like the photographer got at least 4 of us looking at the camera at the same time...quite a feat!

My techie son helped by printing the pics in a sepia tone for me as well as printing out the words I used in the punched oval in brown for me! I guess this card has two creators! Thanks Matt!

The medallions are stamped on theSU! DP and then cut out and matted on the brown and cut out again, some pearls added and then it was all added onto the card with dimensionals. I used the last of my Hero Arts pearls on this card...just the right touch.

This is by far one of my favorite creations...and my parents loved it!
