Smile please...

Every time my daughters and their cousins get together, which is only about twice a year, we love to get their photo all together. 
I think they all find it a little tiresome, but they always manage to oblige !

For this layout I followed the sketch over at Scrap our Stash challenge blog, which has joined up with another challenge blog Stuck?! sketches
The extra challenge was to add any type of  wood to the layout.

So I found some really pretty pink embossed woodgrain paper by Pebbles, and used some patterned papers by g.c.d - vintage charm.The wooden heart is a button.
The sketch is rotated to fit onto my 8.5 x 11 format...

 Thanks to my blogland friend Kerry  for posting the challenge....if you haven't seen her blog - pop over for a browse for some fabulous won't be disappointed !

Thanks for stopping by

  1. I adore your take on the sketch, it looks great turned sideways and I love the red Dymo journaling (must get myself some different colours).
    My teenage girls have to put up with me and my mum (who also scrapbooks) trying to get family photo's! Not everyone is willing but we have found the best way is to let them be silly with their cousins and get photo's that contain exaggerated poses, but at least they are not sulking! Giving them the camera and telling them to sort out group selfie's are fun too!
    Thanks so much for the shout out, you are so sweet. Hugs, Kerry. xx
