I am so pleased to finish this layout. For our family reunion in 2008, it was imperative to My Mother that we take time out of the fun activities, eating scrumptious food, and general chit chat, to take some generational photos. As you may already know, or maybe you don't, so here's a shocker....my family is rather large. My mother had 13 children, who in turn gave her 30 grandchildren. There were then 10 great children brought into this world for my mother to cherish. She also has approximately 15 significant others/in-laws to call her family as well. Even though all of the family was not in attendance in 2008, not sure we would have gotten a single photo with everyone squeezed in anyway, we were able to accomplish this task. The LO shows all of those who were in attendance, Mom with her eldest grandchild, and Mom with her youngest grandchild (as of 2008....LOL).
I completed this LO with the help from several blogs whom I want to Thank for the inspiration and help in motivation towards completing this project. Those individuals being:
The entire Team @ Paper Patch Crafts (Challenge: Family Layout)
The entire Team @ Creative Craft Challenge (A restful colour w/blue, cream, brown)
The entire Team @ CAS-ual Fridays (Bring the Bling)
I used DCWV Garden Party Card Stock for my background, side trim, journaling tags, photo mattes, and the cream w/brown trim tag to the left. This was cut at 3 1/2" with my Lacy Labels Cartridge, Image #18 Heart (without using the layer option). The flowers are a chocolate brown satin with rhinestone center, satin chocoalte leaves, and turquoise paper flowers from my stash. The left side of the background paper is a glitter embossed image (that isn't showing very well on the pic, sorry). FAMILY stickers from Alpha Tags by pixie press.
