Beautiful Pictures = A Beautiful Layout

On May 9, 2009, our family gather in Ohio for the memorial service of my Grandpa Benzing. He was a good man, a devout man of God who also served his country during World War II. I had never attended a military graveside service until this one. My sister, Elizabeth, and my cousin-in-law, Laura took some stunning pictures which they both posted online. I copied all of them to my computer, knowing I wanted to preserve them in one of my scrapbooks. I wasn't sure what to do until I was looking through a magazine and came across this quote: "The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example." It was the inspiration I needed. I changed the photos to black & white in photoshop and left the colors of the flag as well as my Uncle Ron's uniform as he saluted the casket. I used an 8x10 for my main photo and 4x6 for the others. I kept the layout very simple because I wanted the dramatic photos to speak for themselves.

Awesome layout and awesome photos. Did you colorize them. If so, great job. If not, still great job.
