Remembering the 60's

Do you remember the 60's....when peace and love was the chant of many songs across the radio?? when flower power was flaunted as the way to a better tomorrow? I found this adorable little girl's pic in the public domain, (its posted here on my blog along with some other images I came across and wanted to share with you all)....and this little girl with her garland of flowers reminded me immediately of those days. When I seen the background image for the challenge at artcreationsfriday this week it just seemed as if they belonged together...

so that is how I came up with my entry for this week. I cropped and softened the edges of the photo, added it to the background and then added a few words and some daisies. I like how it came out, hope you enjoy it as well. Thanks for stopping in and have a great day!!
