I enjoyed this challenge, truly because it WAS a challenge... using one of my wedding photographs from 21 years ago... I've been divorced from my childrens' father for almost 8 years now. It feels good to finally be to the point where I feel ok scrapbooking him... I can finish their childhood albums, and focus on the positive aspects of our having been married rather than the negative. Of course I ran heavy on the texture... still can't grasp the \"less is more\" concept, but hopefully someday. HUGS KIM!

All I can say is, \\\"I WANT PHOTOSHOP!\\\" Some day.....some day....

I love how you display your photos. I love that they are big and how the writing shows up and disappears.

Thanks for another Texture Tuesday challenge. The white them was especially interesting and I enjoyed looking at all of the shared links. A better camera is a constant dream, but what you have taught me makes the photos I can take now look so much better.
