I just love these pictures. They aren't great portraits but they were the first pictures of this little family...my son in law, daughter, grandson David and New Baby Girl who was less than a day old. What I love about these pictures is the "WHAT THE HECK IS HAPPENING TO MY WORLD??!!" look on David's face!
Here is my layout:
Die Cuts with a View blog. She runs a sketch challenge every month for us DCWV stacks fans!
Here is the sketch:
I used 2 different Fiskars punches for the borders, Fillable Frames #5 and #6 for the frame and "Happy Day" sentiment and those are from Paper Trey Ink and stamped with Jenni Bowlin Brown Sugar ink. The large FAMILY circle was from an image in the Silhouette store and cut with my Cameo. The heart border along the bottom was a freebie from Kerri Bradford Studio. Both cut so beautifully, don't you think? Buttons were from PTI and Memory Makers and the twine was from PTI. Oh and I inked edges of the borders with some Distress Inks from Ranger.
I had a great time doing this layout...the photos just bring a smile to my face each time I look at them. My journaling reads "A first family photo...Here we have a very happy father, a happy but exhausted mother, a sleepy and a little annoyed new baby girl and a big brother who is not at all sure what is going on!"
I just love that David is looking at his new little baby sister so intently. :)
Here are a couple of closeups:
