This week at Better Living Thourgh Scrapbooking is the “Family Tradition” challenge. Create a layout about a family tradition, event, or something your family regularly does together that is not holiday related, then choose at least 2 of the following additions to your layout:
1. Use three or more photos from a family event, cropped to fit your page design.
2. Use paper or supplies on your page that are at least a year old.
3. Use the word “tradition” in the title of your page.
4. Use hidden journaling in your page design.”
To create this "Family Tradition" layout, I used three of the additions to the challenge. With my Cricut and the Potpourri Basket cartridge I created a card and envelope to hide my journal block. I used the word "tradition"in the title and I added more than three photographs to the project. By the way, those pretty little flourishes that I used to adorn the layout are cut from the Potpourri Basket
On the journal block I handwrote a note for my daughters which basically told them how much it means to me that they have kept up the tradition of taking family photographs at beautiful Bertha Brock Park here in our hometown. Every year while they were growing up, I would take them there to take pictures of them together. Now, they go there on their own to take photographs and then give the pictures they take to me as gifts.
This close up of the layout highlights the beautiful buttons I used from our sponsor Charlene's Button Box.
