Inspiration from the HEART

Today is a very special day, it is the anniversary of my mother and step-father, Alice and Jim Wilson. All of their children are grown and on their own, with children of their own too. We have a fairly large blended family.

A couple of weeks ago the entire clan gathered at the Parental Homestead and had a wonderful time visiting and playing with the kids. It was the first time in FIVE YEARS!!! In that time we had six new grandchildren! This was a very BIG day for us all.

It was also a fantastic opportunity for me to get some photographs of everyone and a little documentation on important dates. I wanted to put them all together and create a little family album just for Mom and Jim. So using some of the fabulous paper collections from DCRU I put together a little album and a card for them.

Here are some of the pages from the album. (There is no journaling...I'll get to that tomorrow. Lots of stuff to write down and print out for this little project):







For these pages I used a misc. card stock and layered papers from the Cosmo Cricket lines at DCRU as well as, Basic Grey's Sugar Rush line. (You can't see them but in this little album I also used Basic Grey's Origins.)


Here is their card:


The DPs are from the Basic Grey Sugar Rush line. That cute little image is offered as a digi by TGF. Don't forget though...DCRU has many of the TGF rubber stamps for you to choose from. Those great images are a wonderful way to use all of those Copic Markers...like I did!

Don't forget that Claudia has a HUGE Copic Marker Sale coming up at the DCRU Store. Great prices and GIANTIC selection!


Happy Anniversary Mom and Jim...I love you both...from the bottom of my heart!

Smiles!
Gwen
