I've Been Scrappin'

I loooove going through my old family photos. Is it just me, or did the women from the 40's just have that certain PIZAZZ!! Now, don't get me wrong - without a doubt being an African American in those days was awful .. but I look at these photos and just think that the time...the period of the clothes (shallow I know) .. just so beautiful. The women in my family were also seamstresses - so many of the pictures in my photos - they actually made the clothes they are wearing.

Anyway ... this lay out was for a challenge using black and white or sepia tones, on the Scraps of Color group.

The picture is great Keni. It was definitely a struggle for African American women back then, but not so much in Canada. In my eyes we are all daughters of the same God. All beautiful.
