How to fix those not-so-good pictures

does anyone know?
Oh you thought I was going to tell YOU?!
First of all - 21 years ago there were no digital cameras (at least not that I know of). I was using a Pentax - not anything automatic and I really hadn't a clue what I was doing. Sort of a hit or miss affair. Back then - I just wanted to take the pictures and for the most part i did ok. These are evidence of my lack of skill with that camera however I have photos and that's what I cared about.
When i pulled out these pictures they looked decidedly Christmas-y.
And they are not Christmas pictures.
My husband's Aunt had sent this adorable bear to my son as a gift. And I had good intentions of taking photos of our son every month (after receiving it) with the bear to chart our son's growth - seeing as the bear was so large I thought it would be funny to see when our son actually overtook him - sizewise (of course if you'll notice in the photos, my dear son had some major double chins goin on - gawd the child was adorable - if you only knew what he looked like now you'd fully appreciate the irony - think very slim). Anyway that didn't happen - the monthly photo taking - but I do have these photos (and some others with the bear that you'll see soon).
And they looked like Christmas. Until I decided to pair the photos with this paper by KI Memories and some Bazzill cardstock. I wanted to take the Christmas out so i opted for blues and greens. And actually i think it worked. The alpha stickers are also KI.
That's all for today folks. Go make a page!

If the pictures are not great, it is not obvious because your main subject is SO DARN CUTE!!! The scrapbook page works for me with the blues and greens.

Hi! I just discovered your blog and will link on mine. I am a scrapbooker, and I love that you are busy using up your old stuff instead of out buying new. I sure have a TON of old stuff to use up!

I am also a fan of KI papers. Drop in and visit at Miller Manor sometime!
