I found this photo of my parents which was taken in 1949 after they were married.  I love the look my dad is giving my mother.  They were so in love with each other.  She was 17 and he was 24.   Today she would have been too young to get married.  However, she had already graduated from high school and was enrolled in a secretary school.  They were married for 61 years until his death in April 2010.  He is missed every day!  They had 4 children which I was the oldest.  My dad named me Ginger. 

These are the items that I used:

Maya Roads red rose ribbon
Kaiser Craft lamp post
Chestnut Roan Ink
Prima flowers
Tim Holtz Dream tag
EK Success Pearls
Martha Stewart Circle Cutter
Lace Doily
Jolee's Pocket Watch

Thanks for peeking!
Hugs!  Ginger
