Tenth birthday
« on: Sunday 28 April 19 21:49 BST (UK) »
I have no idea where the original is and this digital copy is years and years old. As you can see the original is rather battered but the digital version is quite low quality which exacerbates the situation.

If anyone could help me and improve it a bit it would be wonderful. It is a birthday party for my mum and her twin sister age 10.

Thank you

Alison

Oh...my...gosh. I cannot begin to understand the magic and wizardry used to do this. You surely are a magician/genius. Thank you so much, it means a great deal to me as it is of my motherís birthday and I thought it was beyond salvage, I never dreamed that it was possible to bring it into the 21st century. Thank you!!!!

            Thanks Lynn & esseco for your encouraging words. As I said previously, I've got a Low

        Blue Light monitor to try and protect my eyes, so I'm not sure how the picture appears

       on your monitors. Fortunately I had the settings on 30% reduction not on 70% ;D ;D ;D

           Thanks again, because I'd promised myself I wasn't going to do any more but I spotted

       this and couldn't resist :D :D :D :D
