1944-My Mom's Birthday Party (at 4 years old)
By day, I'm a Web Designer/Developer and by night I like to create at
Art, in every form, is a HUGE part of my life, and has kept me stable, sane and distracted in the midst of severe health problems and loss of mobility. After several years and 3 spine surgeries, however, I am regaining it and more grateful than words can express.
I live in Dallas, Texas, am married to an incredibly loving and patient man and have two grown sons--one works in Internet Technology at Hitachi Corporation, the other is a Sr. Creative Director for Publicist in New York. I live in a tiny doll house with 2 cats, a squirrel and Blue Jay that eat out of my hand, and lots of other birds that I love to feed and photograph. I am from Detroit, Michigan and am the daughter of a Park Ranger. Most of my inspiration comes from Nature, where I find my best solace, thanks to a happy childhood spent camping in the forests and lakes of Upper Michigan.
I found Pixelscrapper by accident, and Marisa's generosity has made me a fan.
These photos were taken at my mom's 5th birthday party in 1944. They make me smile every time I look at them. One of my (7) uncles was a photographer, so my sister and I have inherited all of these wonderful pictures capturing my mom, aunt and uncle's lives back in the 1940's...
All of the elements are my own with the exception of the yellow note paper with the little hearts (behind the main photo,) which is Marisa's. The hinges are not mine, I believe. I've had them so long. All of the other elements can be downloaded at a link in the Forums area: Forums>Digital Scrapbooking Discussion>Freebies:Pixelberrypie
