Valentine Fun....


This is a sweet picture taken back in 1960, of my Mom, Dad, me, and all of my sisters, by a local newspaper announcing the birth of their seventh daughter. I am daughter number six and the one in my Dad's arms.

As an artist, I couldn't resist the urge to embellish this adorable picture with my own sense of fun and whimsy for Valentine's Day. As you can see, I am the one with the red party hat...I like to be different! xxxooo

Thanks Janie and Hope!! xxxooo
Hope, I am not sure of the answer to your question. All I can say is my Mom never did things small...a bit competative!
