One more Halloween post...

OK, I just found out about the "Just Us Girls" challenge JUGS5 this week and wanted to make a card for it. Now, they said this was to create a holiday card designed to present a photo!
I'm making my Holiday - Halloween!

This is an old picture of my family at Halloween. I mean, old. No one can remember the date, but around 1957, maybe 1958 but definitely before 1959 as my Mom would have been pregnant then.
And that tall person with the white purse - that's my dad! No one guessed who he was! See, my dad wasn't into doing things like this, and I'm still not quite sure how he was convinced to participate. But this does bring back fond memories for me!
As I said, I know this probably wasn't the intent of the challenge (I assume they meant winter Holiday) but the challenge is supposed to be fun too, and did I ever have fun with this! Go check them out at Jugs .

Terri, I'm actually THRILLED that you chose a different holiday! I worded that very carefully to encourage folks to get creative and play along how they saw fit! This is such a FUN Halloween card! I love that you used an old family photo and that your dad is the one holding the purse (I really love your little story wondering how anyone got him to play along since he wasn't the type to normally do something like that :)

I'm so thrilled you found our challenge and I really hope to see you frequently!! Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls this week! Hope to see you next Saturday for a fab Sketch Challenge hosted by Maria!!

Terri this was GREAT to use Halloween - no we had no rules about WHICH holiday - I think the DT just used winter because of Kristin's give-away set. I LOVE your story about the costumes - it's GREAT and what fond memories - THANKS for playing - we'll be sure to email you your set.

Terri I love that you did Halloween - I think I wrote my whole comment and forgot to hit "post" - but any holiday is fine - we just used winter because of Kristin's images. Love the story behind the photo - what GREAT memories. Thanks for playing along with us this week. Be sure to read the "rules" about the stamp set when you receive it - especially how to tag it so we can find it :-)
