Lasting Memories #280 - Catching Up On The News

Hello, hello! How are you today? I am waiting to see if we get any of the wintry weather that they forecast for us today. Nothing major - just a possibility of light freezing precipitation and cold temperatures. I should not complain as we've had a pretty mild winter, but man it is cold!

Lasting Memories has a new challenge posted over on the blog today. The theme for February is "The Blues" and we have a photo/color inspiration challenge for you to use. Here is the photo for this week:

I found these old photos of Matthew "reading" the newspaper, and thought they would work well for the color inspiration from the photo. I stretched it a little in the taupe area with using kraft, but maybe it's close enough!

Once again I did not write the date down on the back of these photos, but I know that they were taken sometime during the holiday season of 1999. I was pregnant with Shane (I could tell this by the shirt I was wearing in one of the photos that I had to crop down) and the ads that Matthew was looking at were holiday ads. He just looks like a little man in these photos with his jeans and button up shirt with the sleeves rolled up and looking at the paper right along with the rest of us. I know my Mom had to have taken these photos since I was in the background. I am so thankful that she loved to take pictures of the kids when they were over at her house, and she always got doubles made to give to us. 

Be sure to check out the Lasting Memories blog to see the layouts from the other team members. You have until the 26th to play along with our challenges this month.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day!
