So once again I embraced my inner

Mz. Ashli at the purple mailbox in making this page. I bought a new punch. I do love flowers sooooooo.....I know you're surprised at my choice. I grabbed some Tim Holtz papers and punched a bunch. And then I had this cute little bottle cap punch and punched some more. And found more TH papers and layered, and glued. And then, I had to find a photo. 
This photo is my great grandmother & Uncle Howard. 
Which was fun, because I went out to ancestry to hunt down his birthdate so I could get a date on the photo and low and behold a little green leaf was waving in my face.
A 1940 census on Uncle Howard and his family. And didn't that have me puzzled.
Because the dates didn't match. 
Which led me to a FB conversation with Uncle Howard and Aunt Pat about these dates.
And I shared the picture which I'm sure he already had.
I ended with the conclusion that the 1940 census was not the correct family.
But darn if the names and most of the dates were almost the same.
Oh and this is the OLW challenge at SNC - DONE!
The word is precious. 

So this page was quite annoying. I put it together, didn't like it, TOOK IT ALL APART. And then PUT IT BACK THE EXACT SAME WAY. Raise your hand if that happens to you.
I actually had a title in mind right out of the gate after seeing that photo.  But what pulled it together was the second smaller photo. 
 I didn't see that picture until after I called the page complete and was looking for more photos.
Gotta love a find like that.

This page is also MADDAWG'S MADCAP challenge-
after all we are in the month of October. And apple-picking,
hayrides, haunted houses, pumpkin patches are really cool photo ops.
