The whole family....

Hey, there everyone! Here's a post I'm sharing on the BOAF Blog today!

 I've so enjoyed this kit! There's plenty of awesomeness no matter what you're trying to scrap! There's plenty papers that would work with boy themes, girl themes, heritage, black and white or color, winter-- you name it, this kit can do it! The kit also works perfectly for cards!

I am finally feeling the urge to scrap a pile of photos that my aunt and uncle gave me over a year ago. When my grandmother passed last December, my aunts and uncles put together a collection of photos for a dislpay at the funeral. I saw many photos I knew and loved, and several I'd never seen before. My aunt and uncle were so sweet to make copies of many of the photos and gave them to me last Christmas. They have sat on my table, just waiting for the right inspiration. My inspiration arrived in my January kit!

This photo was taken around 1959 and features my dad with his four siblings and his parents. In the photo, my dad is the tallest and has the most hair. Now, it's the exact opposite!!

Here's a closeup of the photo. I was able to get the names of everyone in the photo written underneath.

And, the butterflies-- I fussy cut a bunch of the butterflies from one of the Echo Park papers in the kit to add dimension, color and balance to the layout.

I also created a card to share with you today! I love the chalkboard look to the paper and it looks so cool when using white heat embossing powder with your stamps! And, isn't the color of the flower just GORGEOUS?!?!

Thanks so much for stopping by the BOAF blog! I hope you enjoyed my projects. There are only TWO January kits left, so be sure to grab yours NOW!  Check it out HERE!
