Altered Ancestors

A friend of mine is hosting an altered cabinet card swap in the BadBaby yahoo group.

The theme is "My Silly and Serious Ancestors, Real or Not"

This is NOT one of my ancestors but it IS one of my husband's. It is his great grandfather Frederick Furry, he was a baby when his parents made the trip across the country in a covered wagon.

Maybe it was those early memories of being rocked to sleep in a Prairie Schooner that created those pirate dreams LOL

So, here is my creation for the swap, I hope Grandpa Fred approves. :-)

Very nice! And doesn't he bear some resemblance to a young John Wayne? Your usual good humor shining through, in spite of everything. Keep your chin up.
