Family Gathering

Family Gathering

Hi guys! I'm hosting this month at SOUS and I've created a double layout sketch to use. Something you can super fill with photos, or not. =) You'll find that sketch over at the challenge blog. I know sometimes you have taken a ton of photos at an event and really want to use them all, that was kinda the inspiration for this sketch. 

 These family pictures are from 2010 in Half Moon Bay, Ca. At our semi-annual (which means we go sometimes, hence semi..meaning sometimes, LOL) beach birthday trip. My son Scotti's birthday is in August and we love having this weekend getaway to end our Summer the right way!

Its hard to see but all the photo edges were inked with black distress ink. I didn't want to waste paper to mat so many photos but the inking helped them stand out better agains't the background.

The base printed paper and the kraft circle in the bottom left corner are Basic Grey Basics.

Black paper is from my stash and all the other papers, top punched pieces, floral prints and most of sticker embellishments are Echo Park For the Record.

Journaling prompt is from the Smash collection by K&Company, red label and button by BG.

Tab is BG and for the life of me I can not recall the collection. Argh. Buttons, brads are either BG or K&Company or randomness from my stash.

Circle spot and label are stamped.

I was inspired by Nichol Magouirk, love watching her video's on Youtube. So I tried, not easily to do printed journaling text but had to split it to read across the double layout. LOL! I did a good amount of layering here as you can see with the black strips, and the top of the page.

Wow, a bit photo heavy. My apologies but I wanted to share all the details! =) Thanks for coming by!
