So here's the story. When I became engaged to my husband, there was no ring involved initially. Call me crazy if you want, but I didn't need a ring at that time. So, here we are engaged without a ring to show for it. My darling had plans to cover that in a few months. In the meantime, I received a package in the mail. Inside a small box was this ring.
|Can you guess what this is?|
In any case, my sweet future mother-in-law knew it would be a few months until I had a gold ring on my finger. She also had intiution enough to know that I'd like something to say I was engaged by. She gave me something cute and hoped I'd like it. Well, I liked it so much I've saved the box it came in, the note that came with it and the ring all these years.
So... now that you know the story, does that prairie diamond photo tell the story of my future mother-in-law? Nope. So... here's the note and the box that the ring came in.

So I switched the arrangement of the key elements in this story... the note, the box and the ring. I swapped the white background for a black background and tried again.
|I love the ring and the box, but without the note, the story is half told.|
|Using photos to tell a family story|
Oh... and I popped the levels in PhotoShop Elements. Now I have the perfect picture for the wonderful story about my wonderful mother-in-law.
