I like to create cards, scrapbook layouts, mini albums and altered art. I love pretty paper, glitter and coloring with Copics. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 24 years and we have two daughters. I share my craft creations on my blog at www.candyscreationsblog.blogspot.com .
I found this photo on a wonderful Free Vintage Digital Stamps Blog that offered free vintage photos. I thought it was really interesting with one soldier and two brides. I so wonder what the story is behind this pictures?!?
