Family Photo

I am sure I am not the only one . . . but I can count on 1 hand the number of family photos I have.  I have plenty of the kids, hubby with the kids but I am rarely in them.  2 reasons (like everyone else) I don't like having my photo taken and I am usually the photo taker!

So was pleased with this photo taken on Christmas day as we all look happy given the tough year that 2010 was.  It was also really nice to scrap a flowery layout for a change instead of an all boy layout which is usually the case!

Not that I ever make resolutions but maybe this year should be a year of scrapping more photos of myself.  For those who don't know me other than via HBS I had a cancer scare at the beginning of last year and had to have neurosurgery last January.  2010 was a long year of recovery physically and also trying to keep my new business running and growing.  I think 2011 should be a year of being thankful for my health and recording it so I never forget just how lucky I was!  Let's see how I go!

Anyway - The below layout used Jillibean Soup - Pasta Fagioli papers, American Crafts Thickers, Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punches and of course loads and loads of flowers I have been accumulating over the years!  TFL


  1. It feels so good to use up a whole bunch of old stash sometimes doesn't it?! And you know I love this page.

    I think it's a great idea to take more family portraits, and I recently heard about this project called 6 people 12 times which in a nutshell is about taking a group photo every month. Check out this link if you like:

    I'm aiming to do this myself this year.

  2. LOVE this LO! All those flowers and the colours are YUMMY! I know what you mean about family pics, I am always the one behind the lens too, so we have hardly any either. (Must try harder too...LOL) XXX

  3. Love it - the bright colours around the white cardstock makes it look fresh and crisp. I'm with you about the family pics - I am aiming to get one every month this year!!
    What a scare you had last year!! Hope alls well now
