As soon I saw her, it was love. I had wanted to use one of my husband's fabulous backgrounds and I have plenty to choose from. St. Augustine works beautifully. Lizabeth was colored in Prismacolor Pencils and then combined with my husband's color sketch of St. Augustine in the Craft Artist 2 program.
Although St. Augustine is the oldest continuously occupied European established settlement and port in the continental U.S., it was the Flagler era that Lizabeth is celebrating. It was Henry Flagler in the 1880s, who was the driving force that turned the city into a winter resort for the wealthy northern elite.
Moving forward to the 1990s, when my husband Sandy and I moved to Palm Coast just South of the Oldest City, Victorian Spring was a yearly event. Residents in Victorian finery strolled the city and special activities were scheduled throughout the weekend including early model cars, lawn games and popular foods of the vintage era. Of course I dressed up and Sandy enjoyed photographing the events.
I do hope you will join us over at Simply Papercraft for this Freestyle challenge. Sponsored by Lacy Sunshine Stamps.
Come again and see what else I have going on!
