Then


Last week I did an online crop over at ScrapBookDeals4U and had a great time getting to know the gals over there and cropping along with them. One of the challenges was called Spooky Nights and called for using darker colors on the lo, along with a BW picture and a bright accent color. I had just run across this family picture a few weeks ago, so right away it jumped into my mind. (now picture that!)


This picture had to have been taken in 1957 and as far as I know it is one of only two pictures with all of my parents children in it. Having been so young, I of course didn't remember this picture being taken but I for sure remembered those curtains! They were still hanging in my parents living room when I was a teenager! It was a big day when we got the new "fiberglass" curtains. (anybody remember those babies?)


I titled the LO "Then" and I plan on doing a "Now" companion LO to go along with it.


BTW, "I'm" the cute toddler in this picture!
