Project - Aunt Louise and Grandmother Lowell



So beautiful. Love it!

That photo was 100% worth the effort. I love the warm browns in those old photos - much nicer than sepia. And I know EXACTLY what you mean about the agonizing - all the little details. But this is lovely with all that subtle layering and those sweet papers. I though I might find the rest of the album in your gallery - but it is not there <img border='0' src='/images/icons/frown.gif'>

Wow, I love this LO - the photo is beautiful.

This is gorgeous. You did a great job with the photo.

Beautiful, beautiful job! And the fact that you worked hard to get the photo cleaned up &amp; beautiful, is just a loving way to restore long-lost beauty to a treasured heirloom. Love your background choices, and font work is lovely. <img border='0' src='/images/icons/laugh.gif'>

This is so beautiful!! Very classic.

This is my MIL's sweet, sweet sister Louise as a baby with their Mother Anna. I made Louise a quick album for her 80th birthday and have just been waiting for this photo. I had to do a lot of photoshop work on it! I still need to get the date from my MIL and then get it printed. I will be glad to get this sent off to Louise. I love the process of creating but always feel a sense of relief when a project is finished. KWIM?
