Election Day 1926

You all already know about my love for old photos. There's nothing like an old black & white! This one is one of my faves for sure. It's election day 1926, just 6 years after women had the right to vote.
Written on the back of the photo was the date and a note about how excited her mama was to be able to vote in a county election.
I used the September kit from the Paper Bakery, the papers and the pretty grey feather worked so well with the old pic. Don't you love those hats and dresses!

I still have so many old family photos to scrapbook. I honestly hope the boxes never come to an end. I love the glimpse back in time.
***This is today's featured project @ Two Peas!! Woo-hoo!!!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

I adore your heritage layouts and this is a stunner. So soft, the doily and feather are perfect and I love the bright but subtle and limited pops of color.
