What's your favorite photo????

It's the 15th and time for the newest challenge at These are a few of my favorite things challenge blog -
What's your favorite photo?
Be sure to check out the fabulous layouts by our incredible DT!!!!
I know that most of their layouts are centered around photos of their children but honestly I couldn't really pick just one of my son or just one of my DH and me or just one of my mother so I decided to go with one of my very special vintage photos - this photo is of my grandmother (who died before I was born) and her brother - I love their outfits, and that chair is to die for!
I created a collage background using elements from many manufacturers and sources
I like to use actual packaging on my layouts - it makes a statement about the world we live in right now - the colors and phrases used, and it's also about not wasting things.
Hope you like my layout and be sure to come over, check out the DT creations, and show us your favorite photo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful collage - and what a lovely photo. It's a wonderful thing you've done, to work it into a collage. A real keepsake.
