Count Your Blessings

I really like this week's sketch from Creative Scrappers:

I just got the Summer's End collection from Fancy Pants and just had to use it to scrap this photo that was taken of us on Sunday.  Not the best pose (ie smallest to biggest) but when you do an impromptu photo and have family taking the picture, that is just how things go sometimes.  I still do like the picture and considering Jason and I both had run a half marathon that morning and then drove for 3 hours to get there, we look pretty good ;)  I have used a Flashcard from Pretty Little Studio, journal tag from Elle's Studio, some Divine Twine and some May Arts Jute.  All the stamps are from Unity.  The photo of the layout is not the best, but the best I could get with this overcast, cloudy, rainy weather we are having.

Awww, I think it's a super sweet family photo! And what a great page design. Love those papers. The leaves are so eye catching, and I adore the distressing. You do the most fabulous things with baker's twine, too. Love it!
