Gingersnap Creations -Chestnut Theme Challenge- On the Road

   This is my creation for the Gingersnap Creations "On the Road" challenge. I knew I wanted to use this photo of Rick's grandfather and grand uncle taken in 1909. I am not so sure about the final product though.  I softened the edges in I Photo. The images are from the internet and my stash. I used a metal button and brad for the wheel.   Thank you for looking!


  1. Wow - I absolutely adore that image of Rick's GF and grand uncle. I have a picture of my husband's grandmother in an cart being pulled by an ostrich. This reminds me of that - maybe I should pull it out and work with it!
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. What a super piece of work and so personal too. Perfect for the challenge. Thank you for playing along with us at Gingersnaps.
