Heirloom

Greg's prized plane was a toy from Disney's "Tale Spin", an animated cartoon from the early 1990s.  Even more priceless is the flying cap he's wearing, an heirloom from Pa Pa Jim Gay, pictured in the Army Air Corp in World War II.








I added a digital brush on the right side of the cardstock before adding the paper elements.  I then added the journaling to another digital brush, printed it on a lighter cardstock, cut around it before adhering with pop dots over the background brush.

I downloaded the digital brushes from Echo Park.  They have a "Dollar Wednesday" when I often take advantage of the savings.  This kit was $1.50 last Wednesday.  It's fun to get the Wednesday mailing!

I love how you combine digital and traditional scrapbooking. Your elements are so unique and I always love your photos and the story behind them.

This is such a treasure of a page! I love the photo and the way you used the brushes. I also adore $1.00 Wednesday at Jessica Sprague's site. It's awesome!

The combination of digital and normal, really does look amazing - as does the design and colour. I love his hat, what a wonderful keepsake, especially with it being in the top WW2 photograph. How precious.
