Badge No. 1

Hello Friends! Here is, yet another layout (four more pics to go) for my friends Memorial Album of her late husband Daryl, (aka Virge).  The series of photos shown in this double layout were taken at McFly's Photography Studio in Tombstone, AZ. The former owner acquired the original badge, in mint condition, I may add, that belonged to Marshal Fred White.  He was the first Marshal in Tombstone Territory and was fatally wounded by Curly Bill Brocious, one of the Cowboys that was involved in the famous Gunfight at the OK Corral.  This was a momentous moment for our Virge as the only other person other than Fred White that had ever worn this badge was none other than the real Virgil Earp!  I'll never forget this moment, watching his face as they pinned that badge on his lapel...I thought I saw a tear about to come out of his eye!  The photography studio took some great shots of him wearing it, along with great shots of My husband (aka Morgan Earp) and John (aka Wyatt Earp) proudly standing next to him with their hands on his shoulder, as well as his wife, Barbara (aka Allie Earp).  I also included a closeup of the badge, which is pure silver and not to be touched with bare hands! Thanks for looking!

Page Two of Memory Album - Harvest Festival

Page Two of Barbara's Album is of a picture that I had done my own layout of the Harvest Festival in San Bernardino, California.  This photo was also in the Memorial Board that I had done, and thought that I could do a similar layout that I had done of this picture.  You can see the first layout in my older posts.  I used the new Tim Holtz Crowded Attic Paper Stash...great papers!  Thanks for taking a look!

Tremors 4 Movie Shoot- First of Memory Album Series

I've been working on a major project for my friend, Barbara who lost her husband in August.  If you anyone is familiar with my blog page, you will see in an older post that I created a memory board in honor and memory of Daryl, her husband.  The board was used at his funeral and at a couple of Old West Events as a special  tribute.  Barbara has asked me to remove the photos from the memory board and create a memory album for her with each picture.  So here's the first.

This picture was taken in Calico Ghost Town in Barstow, California.  Pictured here is our friend, Scott, along with Michael Gross(the Dad from Family Ties), Daryl and my husband Robert.  I think this was 2002 or 2003.  They were extras in the Sci Fi movie, Tremors 4. Michael Keaton starred in the movie and was nice enough to take a couple of pictures with them during their shoot break. Thanks for taking a peak!
