family ties

Family is so very near and dear to my heart. I’ve spend the past 20 plus years at home as a stay at home mom. Some days, I must admit, I’ve totally had it but I know it’s one of the most important things I do with my life.
Last November I was so thrilled to actually get this photo of my children all together. When you have a large family with many different work schedules, trying to plan a photo shoot is nigh unto impossible. This year my goal is to get one with all 7 of us in it. Should be interesting!

My Family

I created this layout with my March/April Up the Street Scrapbooking Kit. There are still some available if you’re interested. This layout is part of a misting challenge at Up the Street. Misting is so hot right now and I just love altering paper with the sprays.

Quick Tip: Misting embossed cardstock really highlights the beautiful texture of the paper.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you a blessed Easter!
