Always will be a Daddy's girl

This is my take on the 'two picture' prompt, using pictures taken 21 years apart. As I mentioned on Shimelle's forum, in the first one, she has little chubby cheeks and fine wispy hair. Her daddy has thick hair and chiselled cheek bones. 21 years later ...ummmm.... well they seem to have swapped characteristics.
You probably can't see from the picture but I had experimented with spritzing glimmer mist over the cardstock. I wasn't too keen on the finish, but it looked better once I'd hidden the more blobby bits with paper and photos!
Although I love using the 8.5 x 11 size album, when you use 2 pictures on a page, it kind of leaves you very little space for any embellishments or journalling. Not sure how I'll get round the next prompt for 4 or 5 pics on a layout - maybe I'll have to resort to Picasa collages!

Love your description of the photos and the differences in characteristics. LOL. Great layout, Deb! xo

Hooray for Picasa for multi photos!!

And as I said on the forum, I hope you made that comment about swapping characteristics out loud... ;-)

I love the ribbon on the layout, and one can definitely see what attracted you to your husband in the first place!

I rarely use any size but 12x12 these days, as I've got used to putting so much stuff on that I get stuck with smaller pages!

This one looks great, and it's the perfect subject matter, both photos are lovely! x
