One of my new hobbies is researching our family history. My side of the family tree was compiled by my aunts and uncles, but my husband's was a mystery to us. I've been using family information from my husband's uncle, a second cousin, and ancestry.com. This is not an advertisement for them, but they have been a great resource!
The other part of my research has been scanning and restoring photos from my husband's great-grandmother as well as many photos from my family. I've taken a little break from digital scrapbooking as much to do this. Photoshop is an amazing thing! Here are some of the before and after results...

I'm certainly not an expert photo restorer, but I'm learning as I go and having so much fun doing it!
