<3 this lovely digital layout.... and LOOK... the gentleman's actually standing as well, LOL :)

a highly texturized, dark background makes the light, distressed matting and photo 'pop.' A curling cord adds movement and ties everything together beautifully.

"Vintage."  Not that heritage pictures need to be on "heritage" pages, but this is a great layout.

Vintage ~ A monochromatic heritage page with layered ephemera background is brightened just enough with a pearl flourish and ivory flowered lace border.

Dirk and Maria ~ Interesting heritage page with the look of an old fashioned collage. Love the inclusion of name tags with dates.

Privileged to have some really old photos to work with so used lots of suptle layering to enhance them
