My Aunt's 90th Birthday

We received an invititation to my Aunt's 90th birthday party. On the invitation it read,"In lieu of gifts please bring something for her scrapbook." Well, needless to say, I was happy about that! So I put my mind to work and came up with this. The main background picture is of my father (my aunt's brother) and mother when they were 24 yrs. old on a boat on a lake. The text says it all. I put the last known full family photo in the upper right hand corner from 2001. My father passed away in 2003. The kids have grown since then but it includes everyone. I listed their names so that she would have a record of the expanding family! I used GluGlider Pro High Tac to adhere it to a 12 x 12 piece of Inque boutique cardstock. I am quite happy with how it turned out. If you double click on the photo it enlarges and you can see the colors more accurately. I just hope she has a 12 x 12 scrapbook!
