November 11 - Remembrance Blog Hop

This week Heather challenged us to make something that deals with remembrance. I realize I went back a little too far, since I technically don't remember any of these people (my great-grandfather died twenty years before I was born), but I've always loved this photo and don't do nearly enough heritage pages as I need should.

This seemed like the perfect opportunity!

I kept the page simple, didn't want too much stuff to overshadow the photo and my favorite Downtown Grunge kit was perfect for the heritage look. I added just a few little splashes of color with the Pool Party ribbon, green bracket and notes tag.

Supplies used:
Be sure to check out all of the other ideas from my fellow blog hoppers!

Your page is beautiful. I love the old photo combined with "modern" colors. Is this a hybrid page? Did you use "real" pool party ribbon or digital ribbon?

Holly VanDyne said...

Thanks everyone! Candy - it is not a hybrid page, everything on it including the ribbon is digital. :)
