This is a photo of my Great Uncle Sidney. This layout was created with all the beautiful papers and embellies included in My Creative Scrapbook's Main Kit - Webster's Pages. I distressed the light blue made and added a small scalloped border with my scallop scissors. I cut the designs in the paper so that I could slide my photo and mats behind the designs. Added a little faux stitching. The photo is behind an oval I cut with my scalloped scissors and then I added the three dimensional dots around the oval. Needless to say, this is a very old photo and was encased in a black and very stiff cardboard oval frame, so I had to scan it and then use the photo in it's oval shape. I cut out a couple of butterflies from the patterned paper and the larger butterfly is a MS punch that I coated with stickles. Journaling is tucked behind the mat and reads:
This is a photo of my (Great) Uncle Sidney McDowell. Sidney was born on May 5, 1892. I'm not sure how old he was in this photo, but I believe it was made in the late 1898 or 1899. He was my Grandmother Pace's younger brother (Grandma Perdue's Uncle). I think he was a very handsome young man, and I just fell in love with this photo the first time I saw it.
