my family... 41

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, August 3, 2014 @ 9:01 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge theme is: "In the family". What family? The family of distress colors? Your ancestors? Friends you feel are closer than your biological family? There are a lot of answers to the question of this week's challenge and how you answer our call to creativity is entirely up to you!
I chose to create a mini album featuring my family members currently residing at home. (Note: my dear son and his wife live in San Francisco and my sweet sister Tina lives in her own home :) 

I invite you to meet my family ~ I started with a photo of my sweet husband Scott and I:
The book was made using GRUNGEBOARD along with WALLFLOWER paper:
