Family photo mini book









I put this together really quickly by using the same plan for every page and a single line of paper. I used Scenic Route Providence. Even though these photos were taken on Christmas Day, I opted not to do a Christmas theme. The stamps and the scallop punch are Stampin Up. The Cover title letters are thickers. The letters on the title page are Basic Grey. I painted the edges just a little by closing the book and running a foam brush around the sides.

These are my brothers and sisters and their families. I don't know how long we are going to be lucky enough to have every single one of our kids home at Christmas. They are all growing up so fast. Of my mother's 17 grandchildren, only 7 of them still live with their parents and 5 of those 7 are in high school. It won't be long until they all have their own families and their own traditions. I am thankful to have these photos and especially thankful to have all of their love.
