Golden Wedding Souvenir

I'm in the process of making a Golden Wedding Anniversary framed canvas picture and this isn't it!:

That might sound a bit odd, but the photo in the middle is the one I'm using - its the wedding of my inlaws taken in 1960 - but the frame and embellishment you see here is just a 'sample collage' I got from Picnik, which I'm not all that keen on.  I'm trying to do my own canvas montage, but my printer is playing up and has produced white stripes on the printout of my photo, grrr!

I also made this Picnik digital collage using a close-up picture of them too:
(Which is another one that I won't be using).

I love looking at old pictures, seeing how people looked so different to now, and these two, now in their 70's, look pretty different to how they did then.
We're going to their Anniversary party on Sunday, so I'm going to have to get this pesky printer problem fixed pretty sharpish!

Thanks for looking and for any comments,
See you tomorrow,

Good luck with getting your printer sorted. Mine did a similar thing a while back and it was the print heads, which meant a new printer for me :(

Congrats to your in-laws, that quite an achievement. x

How's your printer today. They're great when they work but drive you loopy when the don't and it's usually when you need something specific. Love the pics, congrats to your in-laws. Jaqui x

Good news! My printer is working again now. I just replaced a blue cartridge and its fine now. It's an Epson, btw. Glad I didn't have to buy a new one - phew! x
