This photo shoot was totally impromptu and I LOVE the way the 4 of my kids look. Our newest little Grandson was just hanging out with his BIG sister and my Son and Daughter- in -law when I said
 " let's take a family pic" (not so easy with a 7 month old )!
 I chose the colors based on what they were wearing but the AWESOME  double page design came from my newest addiction, KIWI LANE DESIGN TEMPLATES. I saw their Doodle challenge WK 26 and I stayed up until midnight just to complete it!
 SOOO much fun, the templates make putting a lay out together easier than taking the photo! The title, FAMILY IS EVERYTHING is from the Sophisticated  Cricut Cartridge and the card stock is a combination of   the Baby Boy DCWV collection , Recollections (striped paper) as well as Bazzill solid colors. I edged all the paper with Quick Quotes Mocha  Mama  chalk ink.
I used a reverse on the title area since I wanted it to be much bigger.
 I used denim fabric from a swatch sample book
 for the pleated banner tag.
I used  Paisley Place  and Happy Trails templates

This was the Kiwi Lane Design sketch I used for inspiration
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are inspired to try KIWI and I hope you fall in love with it like I did!
