I am looking forward to reading about Olga's travails. And to see how she met a husband. And gets herself settled into raising her family on the farm. :-)

OMG....I have tears in my eyes...you are making me laugh so hard!!! I don't think I will ever grow tired of that picture.

Is this your 'thing' now...you are going to throw it out there with a different background every couple of months? Ok, if that wasn't your plan, you should do it..

You need to go back to school. She's going to look back at this and hurt you. But think of how much fun you can have with this at her rehearsal dinner.

John Deere Mom said...

I can't take credit for it! My mom cut Little Miss out of the original picture with a free hand cropping tool, then put her into the Statue of Liberty pic. Apparently it had a bunch of people in the picture, but she got rid of them! She is very talented!

Oh, boy, you've discovered Photoshop. We're in trouble now. hehe

Caroline said...

That is so perfect! I loved that picture in its original form, but this is even greater! The Russian Babushka at the feet of Lady Liberty. Beautiful.

I should've smelled Delberta all over that one! I think you need to print that out for your desk! I'm sporting some scrapblogged pics in frames this year!
