tQuite a few years ago, I saw a layout in a Creating Keepsakes magazine that had a great idea. I think it was the 4th of July or some other summer event and they used a flag as a backdrop and took photos of each family member. That idea stuck in my head and in 2009, I did a similar photo shoot. My family is usually only all together once or twice a year. When I went home that summer, I borrowed a quilt from my mom, hung it over a swing-set in my brother's back yard and did a family photo shoot. I took photos of each individual, each family and then the entire family. It was a lot of fun and I love that I have these photos!
The layout was created with the March 2012 Studio Calico kit, Story Hour. I used the Silhouette Cameo for the letters "BOOTH FAMILY" - the font is Dream Orphans. I also cut the leaves out with my Sil and then hand-stitched the lines in the center. The flowers were made by Amy Tan exclusively for the Studio Calico kit. I really need to make some of these!
Creating this layout made me realize that we haven't done this the past couple of years. I really hope that we do a Booth family photo shoot again this summer!
Have a great week everyone!
