August with Picture This ...

Playing along with Picture This during August.

Their first challenge is to have a  black background + 1 photo + 2 pattern papers.

I have used a black and white print on black cardstock with a heart cut from red and white patterned paper and mounted on white cardstock.



This is my mother when she was in her early twenties.  I often wonder what dreams she had for herself and my father at this age - whether they feared for the future or looked at life as a positive adventure.  This was the early 1950's and Australia had only come through the second world war a handful of years before - things were still in short supply and life was uncertain.  I guess the future, while an unknown quantity, was better than those difficult years of the past.
