Time for another June vintage lo

This is an old photo that was published in the local newspaper after the county fair. This picture of the Samuel Calvin Bishop family was taken at the Montgomery County Fair in 1898. His family won the prize for having the most sons-nine to be exact. Most of the sons had a middle name in honor of an outstanding person. Harry Stanley got his name from Stanley of the David Livingston story. Howell was named for a lawyer family friend. Samuel is seated with his wife, Alice Hayden Bishop.

I used the June kit for this one. I added some Prima flowers and leaves from my stash. The big rose is a grungepaper flower made following TH's tutorial. I added a Fancy Pants rub on and used SCAL and my Cricut to cut the title. This lo is also based on this month's sketch.

I used my Fiskars "apron lace" edge punch to created the edge around the circle. I have used this for several of my lo's now and love the look.
