The birth of my son turned our family into a family of four.  This photo of all of us at the hospital on his birthday represented to me a huge milestone in our family.  Never again would it be the three of us.  Now we were "four..  To highlight that photo, but keep the rest of the layout simple, I used a chipboard frame by Bo Bunny Press and lots of white (actually brown!) space.




  1. Crop two vertical photos to 3 ½" x 5" and one photo to 5" x 5".
  2. Round all four corners of the two smaller photographs.
  3. Sand the edges of the largest bracket frame to reveal the white core edges.
  4. Peel the adhesive backing off the frame and center it over the 5" x 5" photograph.
  5. Use a craft knife to trim away the excess photograph around the outside of the frame.
  6. Line up the three photographs across  the top portion of the brown cardstock, leaving about a 1" margin at the top, and adhere them to the page.
  7. Add the word "four" and several ‘4's (the numeral) with chipboard alphabet stickers to the bottom right corner. 
  8. Handwrite "and then there were" above the title with a white gel pen.
  9. On a scrap piece of white cardstock, write the date with a brown pen and trim to a small rectangle. 
  10. Adhere the date strip to the bottom of the "F".
