Old Time Music

The Black Twig Pickers live the tradition of old-time music that surrounds their homes along the Virginia-West Virginia line.  Bob and I live the tradition of finding something fun to do together on our day off where we appreciate the surroundings and enjoy being together.  Chestnut Ridge Park 2012

The fiddler on my layout is one of the actual trio.  I enlarged a photo,converted it to black and white, then hand cut around the gentleman to add to my page.

The trio really did play wash boards and bones!

I loved the words on the digital overlay by Cottage Arts:  "Love the music of life"!  Also the Tiny Type words by Cosmo Cricket:  "Things that make me happy".  It was a cool summer evening as we donned our chairs on the sledding slope of the park. And the digital labeling block by Michelle Coleman also fit the theme!

Finally I added the word art "us" to the white spots on the neat paper that was included in a back issue of Somerset Memories.

Enjoy the Labor Day Holiday!
