Dad's truck

Here's another - did this last night while I had access to Lynley's sewing machine. The two pages of writing dad did will be typed up & put behind the photo. I'm going to do another of this photo & journaling I think so I can give one to dad & keep one for me - I love the photo! Any suggestions on different ways to do it would be appreciated (can't do the same thing twice!). The title of the LO in this case was the writing that was on the side of the truck when he acquired it (the truck) for a bottle of whiskey as a 16/17 year old much to his dad's disapproval! - the people in it (must put that somewhere on the layout come to think of it) - my mum sits on the footboard, dad standing @ the back by the door & dads sisters from left to right - Robyn, Heather & Gaynor. Posted by Picasa

Great LOs Lara - now i want whitebait LOL I haven't had any for years! I did a duplicate LO for my dad a little while back. the one I did for Quinn's album was brown and had Karen Foster blueprint pp on it, for the one I did for dad i used blue and the blue blueprint pp and everything else was the same except the journalling wasn't addressed to Q.

What a wonderful series of LOs. I dont use picassa to upload to blogger so cant tell you why they are compressed? Do you use Hello? Maybe that might work? I use windows picture manager.
