Family - a photo and a layout ...

My mom snapped this photo the other day before we left for Darian's graduation ceremony. I know it's not the "perfect" family photo because Darian (the little stinker) refused to sit still and look at the camera, but honestly I absolutely love it! It shows US - who we are every day. Silly and happy and together. Us.


And here's a layout I created with this photo using some yummy papers from Black River Designs about our family.


These papers are from the Kelly's Garden collection and I just love how they all work so well together so I created a bit of a patchwork background with them and laid my photo and journaling center stage right in the middle of my layout.



I added some fun details with chipboard letters and shapes, word stamps from Unity Stamp Company, and felt flowers and pearls from Zva Creative.
