Family - The Greatest Gift

Family - The Greatest Gift

My husbands family on his father side has a local family reunion every December.
Sadly the gatherings are getting smaller and smaller as the years go by so to me
this get-together is a gift of celebrating those who are still with us and those who have gone before.

    I really like this layout.
    loads of pics but well placed and I like the straps and hinges.
    Love the photos and embellishments.
    I really like the belt look and how you made your LO--family gatherings are precious esp. as the years go by we older ones can appreciate them more.
    I really like your straps & hinges. They bring an old world feel to an recent event...which is perfect for a family reunion.
    I love the different frames you used and how you tied it all together with the straps and buckles.
    Thanks so much for all the kind words on my first ScrapGirls layout - they are appreciated.

    My New Years resolution for Jan 2011 was to learn Photoshop and I started by purchasing several SG sets to get me going.
    As the year progressed my Photoshop skills grew as did my ongoing collection of SG sets.
    It only seemed fitting that I would end 2011 by creating my very first all SG digital scrapbook layout using some
    of those wonderful images. I hope to post more layouts in 2012 as I continue to be inspired by all the amazing talent
    here at SG.

    Grins and Giggles to you all,
    Evelyn (aka EKDuncan)
