My whole heart…

PBALDWIN_NOV26_NOVEMBER3X4LAYEREDSENTIMENTS_DETAILNovember 2nd….that was the day I we decided we really needed some new family pictures. It was a BEAUTIFUL sunny Sunday, so we rushed went to the park, with just an hour or so of daylight left. I remember telling myself to “chill out”…don’t worry if this doesn’t work out, just try to enjoy the time together. Of course, I wouldn’t need to be telling myself that if I was actually FEELING that way… but I’m sure you know how it can be, trying to convince little kids that we need to get somewhere to do something on a timeline. Anyhow…the little chat with myself helped. We let the kids run around for a bit and check stuff out. IMG_7105_edited-3These big old doors are pretty awesome, but Liam could NOT understand why they wouldn’t open. IMG_7097_edited-2Found a park bench and attempted to get a decent family shot, which was…..interesting.

IMG_7103_edited-1My whole heart….right there! I got a lot of good shots, but this one, definitely my favourite!!! Liam liked the cannons.

So I went EXTRA big with this one and turned that photo of Brett with the munchkins into a two page spread, with the photo spanning both pages! PBALDWIN_NOV26_NOVEMBER3X4LAYEREDSENTIMENTSI used Studio Calico’s The Underground kit and I made my own embellishments for this layout. PBALDWIN_NOV26_NOVEMBER3X4LAYEREDSENTIMENTS_DETAILThat tag was actually made out of white cardstock, printable adhesive gold foil, and Ali Edwards’ digital overlays “November 3×4 Layered Sentiments”.  I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of gold 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
