Creating with Vintage Illustrations - Day 2!

I have had this vintage image of my dad and his brother Robert, in my album for years. As nearly as I can figure this would be circa 1930 - 1932. Both of these dear men have passed away now. I am eternally thankful for the sense of family and country my dad gave me. His brother Robert died at the young age of 24 during WWII. He was a member of the British home guard and contracted tuberculosis. Sadly he was never able to marry his girlfriend "Wendy", or live out his life's potential. Shortly after his death my family came to the United States. I treasure each family photograph, because they are so few due to weight restrictions for immigrants on airplanes.

I am so thrilled with the Creating with Vintage Illustrations CD, because it has the perfect images to showcase my special photographs! Hope you will enjoy it too!

Crafty Secrets is going to change their Clear Stamps to Digital CD’s and all the stamps will go on sale starting this Friday! Why? Owner Sandy Redburn says her husband retired last year and they want to simplify their life. “With over 200 stamp sets and over 100 printed products it’s time to clear the clutter and make room for some exciting new changes!"

WHY DO DIGI STAMPS? Imagine if you were to open a stamped image in a digital file and make it different sizes, be able to print it with perfect clarity on any medium, plus have an array of inspiring samples to browse through with links to the designer, read tips and tutorials, etc. With new digital stamp designs we won’t be limited to size any longer, so we can have jumbo size images, include inside verses for cards and background stamps, or have an image pre-stamped in 3 different colors to choose from and even include printable color papers in themes to suit the stamps!

Be sure to check out all of the other design team members' projects! I know I will be.
