Day 174 - I ♥ Faces fix-it friday

Today is a special fix-it Friday at  i heart faces. Here is a quote from their site:

"To go along with our "We Are Family" theme, we wanted to highlight a family that is very special to us - the Zwart family. Angie (co-founder of i heart faces) is friends with Jeff and Adrienne...and Adrienne is also an active participant in our weekly challenges.

The dad in this family has been struggling with cancer for years and they found out the devastating news in December that his cancer is now terminal. They are now doing everything they can to enjoy the rest of the time they have together on this earth."

My heart goes out to this family and it was with tears in my eyes, that I worked on the picture for today. My prayers are with them as they go through this difficult time.

Here is the original:

I love this picture and other than bumping the contrast a bit, I did nothing in terms of basic editing. Then I used different papers and textures to try to create a bit of a nostalgic photo album look. The quote was one I found online from the TV show, "The Wonder Years".

Here is my edit:

To see more "fix-its", head on over to i heart faces:
