The Malcor Family - MDSM109

The MDS Monday Blog (really Heidi) has a new sketch for us today MDSM109.  You may view all the great pages created by the design team here:

I used photos that were taken of our "Malcor Family" photo shoot in California in Dec 2014.  I had a hard time figuring out what papers to use... as each photo had different colors in them (and my brother-in-law's family all had bright red scarves on). After spending a lot of time changing out papers... I said why don't I just change the photos to black and white! Whew! After that things went a whole lot easier. LOL!

I used photo boxes for each square, and the boxes that do not have photos in them -- I used the 'Love Story Project Life cards'.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Background - Whisper White
Stamp Brush Set - Vintage Overlays (Basic Gray)
Embellishments - Love Story cards and leaf (Basic Black at 30% opacity)
Punch - Square (filled w/Basic Gray)
Font - Pristina (Basic Black)

Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog
