Easter chick

I scrapped more vintage photos this weekend, which is always lots of fun for me. These are from my first Easter. On Easter Sunday, March 26, 1967, Mom and Dad were 26 and 33 years old, respectively, and I was four months. My parents (when they were first married) and then our family (once they had us kids) always drove the two-hour trip to Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, to spend holidays with relatives there. So these photos are taken with my Nana and Papa (on Dad’s side) in front of their home on Fourth Avenue. Don’t you just love Mom’s Easter hat?

I created this layout using the PageMaps sketch shown below and am entering it in their Freehand Scraps sketch contest. Please wish me luck, and I hope you have a lovely Sunday!

What a delightful page! I love that you used vintage photos (they are in fabulous condition, too!)
Great job!

Thanks so much, Lisa! I really enjoyed doing this page. My mom has done a great job of preserving our older photos, but I also did a good bit of Photoshop cleanup on these as well. I think it’s worth the effort to bring vintage photos back closer to their original condition before I use them on a page. I wish it didn’t take so much time, but once I’m finished I’m always glad I did it. :-) Thanks very much for visiting and commenting.
