Photo of my dgc, Allen, Helen Grace, and Pierce. My son took this photo with his cell phone and I think it's a great pic of the three of them. I used Echo Park - This and That for this layout. The butterfly is a Memory Box die. The "stars" were printed and cut out with the Cameo, then I colored them with Copics and added some glitter to the edges. The banner is just strips of the patterned paper. I punched the "v" out of each end with a square punch. I made the photo corner by cutting several of the same corners and layering them for dimension. The banner on the bottom was cut in one long strip, then I folded it on each end to make it have more dimension. I did quite a bit of faux stitching with a pen, and the stitching on the banner tags was done by piercing the paper and connecting the holes with a black pen. The little diamond strip under the photo was cut from the patterned paper using a circle punch ...super simple! I added a few dots of liquid pearls. Title word is some Thickers from my stash. Journaling is tucked behind the photo and reads:
In March 2012, your Mama had just started her new job . For the first several months of her job, she had to travel each week to a different city to complete her training. She would usually fly out on Sunday and fly home every Friday. Your Daddy spent the week working and taking care of you all (and Uncle Thomas came over sometimes during the week to help out). On Fridays, your Daddy would pick you up from daycare so that all of you could go to the airport to welcome your Mama home. One Friday, you were a little early getting to the airport, so your Daddy took you to the park to let you play for a little while. While he was there, he snapped this picture of the three of you with his cell phone, and sent me a copy of the photo. This is such a great picture of the three of you! Just look at those happy faces!
