'All Dressed Up'

Happy Sunday is a beautiful summer day today!

Today I would like to share a layout I created with a photo taken the day of my niece's wedding. We took a photo just before we left our home to travel to the wedding.

My friend was awesome and she stayed at our home with the boys while we went off to the wedding, but we included them in the photo. There are Four Generations in this photo, my Mom, my husband and myself, two of our children and one spouse and grandsons.

Here are some closeups.....

I stamped my background with this lovely Family sentiment stamp from My Stamp Box with Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Then I added splatters of watercolour paints in yellow, pink and blue.

This shot shows off my machine stitching layered up with some Jillibean Soup die cuts and wood veneer and Freckled Fawn Acrylic Shapes and label sticker (from an Oh Deer Me kit that I won).

I layered up some Jillibean Soup die cut and wood veneer flowers, leaves, tags and arrows topped off with a Freckled Fawn flair button. I used a Recollections embossed paper for my background and all the other papers are Jillibean Soup.

I used the sketch from Challenge Yourself for inspiration.

I was also inspired by the July Color Spot at Let's Capture our Memories

and the challenge at Lasting Memories to use the Theme - Together and 3 or more patterned papers.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your Sunday...hopefully together with Family or Friends.

Stay Crafty!!!
