Family Wall and a card

I wanted to put all my favorite family photos in the same place so I remembered the vinyl quote I bought at the Scrapbook USA expo a year or so ago and thought I could use it a way to pull all the photos together and add the baby cross stitch that my Mom had made for my babies when they were born. With DH H's help, I got the words on the wall then started planning where the photos etc would work. I bought all new frames for the pics buying black to tie everything together except for the little stitcheries, leaving them in the frames they came in originally.

I arranged and rearranged the pictures making sure each of my three children had their own special spot! LOL

A family photo in the middle (minus our youngest grson for right now) and then each child in their own frame, then a large portrait of my family from my parent's 50th anniversary and a photo of just my parents, sister and brother. Last but best of all my two youngest grandsons...in two of my favorite pictures I had so far.

I still want to add something on the left side and also below our family picture but that can come. LOL

I promised my DD and sister I would show them the gallery so here it is girls!

I made this card for a challenge from my CTMH (stamps) lady who gave us that cute little flower and challenged us to create something with it. I used a card and some paper from my expo goodie bag, ribbon, brads and some glitter glue from my stash. I also used a phrase stamp and ink from CTMH.
A quick fun project.

I just love how you have wrapped all the little family's into one big wall. Good thing you have a big wall because I am sure there will be more pictures to put up. The card is really cute too! What fun you have been having!
