I chose this for my inspiration: http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gall...x.php?n=414737. I've been restoring photos from as far back as 1909. They were in an album that was disintegrating and the acid in the paper has eaten through portions of every photo. This is one of my Mom, taken in 1930 when she was 21. My sister gave me the album, knowing I would restore the photos, so this card is going to her. Dies: SB/Lacy, plain and scalloped ovals - MB/butterfly - SL/Sentiment. The BG is a printable from Pinterest. She was so sweet and kind. I really hit the jackpot when it came to parents!

If your avatar is indeed a photo of you, then I would venture to say you look like your mom, Priscilla. What a beautiful photo, a most gorgeous bg and your added butterfly and rhinestones make this extra special~
