When I saw my photos from the Red Album Project up against that explosion of colors I loved it. I'm all for vintage and heritage layouts having a lot of color. For me it brings in a sense of realism. We often look at the "good ole' days" as something simple and colorless. Not me. I know my dad lived life full of adventure and excitement. I like how the color expresses that for me.
The photos of are my dad with two of his sisters and I think at least two are his older half brothers. The two children are his nephews. Lesson I learned: make sure if you are making an educate "guess" at names that you have a back up piece of the element you used for journaling. I thought the baby my Aunt Helen was holding was Dad's younger brother, but actually it's Aunt Helen's little boy. Now I've got to go in and change it.
