{1953}

Here's a layout made with the June add-on kit from the Paper Bakery. I used one of my Dad's old Navy pics, along with his withholding statement from 1953.

Another layout completed for the family history album ;)

As always, thanks for stopping by!

This is so cool that you have this! My grandmother found some old stuff like this when she was cleaning and I've been trying to figure out how to incorporate it.

This is wonderful, what a great use of that older photo. I have several of my dad and always looked at them as a challenge because they were smaller.
