Family is Forever

Hi, Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway.  I am honored to be the Guest Designer today!

I took a similar photo of my three sons when Tanner was 2 weeks old.  In that photo, he would not keep his hand open flat so instead we got him to grab his brother's pinkie finger (totally precious).  This Christmas, 6 years later, Tanner suggested we take another "hand" picture ~ so we did!

I wanted to preserve this photo along with a message to my boys about what I wish for them.

I started out by placing a 4x4 square on my Gypsy mat to represent the photo.

I placed this Icon shape from Creative Memories Art Philosophy at 9.31 inches on a new layer.  I cut it out of Tim Holtz double sided paper.  I trimmed it in half then cut off a 2 inch section and flipped the bottom half over.

I cut out Family is Forever from Sophisticated sized to 1.43 inches.  I used black cardstock.
I used Tim Holtz paper to mat my photo and create a journaling tag.  I destressed the edges of hte paper and inked around the photo mat and journaling card.

I used 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon across the center of the layout.  I added some metal rings, arrow and brads to the page.

This is a layout that I will frame and display for a while before I add it to my album.  Thanks Pam for having me over today!!
