"Sincerely, Loretta Young" Layout - VIDEO TUTORIAL

Hello everyone! Today I would like to share with you my layout for the Words & Paintery challenge for December, 2016. You can find the video tutorial (mostly in fast forward) at the end of this blog entry.

Scrapbook Mixed Media Layout Loretta Young by Jessica McFall

The picture is a photocopy of my grandfather's original signed picture of the beautiful actress Loretta Young. When he was in the military and stationed in Hawaii, many actors, actresses, and high ranking military officials (including President Roosevelt) would visit the troops stationed there.
