Valentine’s Day Gift Recipe

Valentine’s Day Gift Recipe

Our friend Maureen Taylor, The Photo Detective, shared a lovely (and terrible) story about her parent’s wedding album. “While all old photo albums fade with age, Mom’s was the worst! – The film processing or printing was done poorly and mom never really enjoyed her wedding album."

This year for Christmas, Maureen scanned the photos and RESTORE-d them. “Mom was thrilled.”
