 I'm planning a series, using old family photos.  Here's #1:

This is my granddad, with my Uncle Bob and Aunt Muriel.  I used photocopies of the dictionary def. of "father" in varying sizes, gold vellum (it's shinier/glitterier<--is that a word? in real life), and letter beads.  Inked edges and a bit of ink on the beads.  I'm pleased with the card, not with my photography skills.  I can't wait to do more in this theme!

edited to change to improved photo...a little natural light goes a long way!

Nice concept. I like the use of family photos in work- it makes it even more personal. I actually have a small piece of that gold vellum also, so I know what you mean when you say it is shinier in person!
