Love Story

I wanted to scrap this old photo of my FIL and late MIL having a bike ride in Tandragee, Ireland during their courting years


I cleaned it up and added some colour to their clothing so everything would co-ordinate 


Then I made my page.....this is my second go at scrapbooking and I really enjoy it!



We just decorated one of the spare bedrooms which is in Blues & Cream so I made this to hang on the wall :)



I am quite pleased with how this turned out
