My sisters
« on: Tuesday 07 May 19 13:46 BST (UK) »
Hi.
My name is Jennie, I have an old photo of my sisters and I taken about 64 years ago. I was wondering if someone might be able to colour it for me. I am the little one holding the crocodile, apparently I was upset and scared and they gave me that to keep me quite, But then they took it back. Nasty people. The crocodile was green. we all have dark brown eyes and brown hair. My older sister and my 3rd eldest sister both had matching dresses made from the same green curtains as mum used to make all our clothes, we were very poor, but happy. Sadly my older sister and I are the only ones still alive.
If anyone can colour this photo for me I would be over the moon.
Thankyou Jennie

Hi Jennie, here's one from me, you are so lucky to have a lovely photo like this, don't you all have lovely eyes.  I coloured the photo then read your post again, I hadn't noticed before about the dresses being green, but fortunately I had coloured them green.

         I noticed Jennie, that someone has attacked the original with a felt tip or the like :o

            Destroying a lot of detail especially on the hair and on some eyes.  Was it it you

           Jennie?!!!!!!  :o :o :o  Just because they took the crocodile away is no reason to take out

            on the photo.   Naughty Girl!!

               ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Hello Pat, Hello Tomkin.
That is so lovely, how beautiful they are. Thankyou so very very much. I cannot wait to sent these off to my children and sister. And I actually didnt notice that someone must have tried to touch the photo up Tomkin, it certainly wasnt me, artwork is not one of my strong points. LOL. I have just been sitting and staring at these two coloured photos.
So very very well done, its hard to fathom at the moment.
Thankyou from my heart
Love Jennie

Hi Carol.
Thank you, that's great. it most definitely looks softer then the old original, I cannot wait to see your color version.  The coloring is so fantastic, I am really impressed with all this.
Thanking you. Jennie
