Going Vintage

My first real attempt at some vintage style scrapping ... not great, there's still something I cant put my finger on that's not quite right IYKWIM, but I guess it takes practice.
I had fun creating though ;)

My mum scanned and sent me a heap of old pics a while back when I was making a mini album for my
Grandmother ... I was inspired to have a look through them again because her 90th birthday is coming up. This pic is of my Grandmother with her 2 daughters (my Mum is the toddler) taken at Torquay Beach, Hervey Bay, Queensland on the 9th of January 1953 (I think it's 1953, judging by the age of my Mum in the pic).
I cropped the original pic a little, played a little with the contrast and then added a little sepia tone to it.

The papers, flowers and pearls are all Prima yummies.
