Welcome! You should have come from Sandy Lopez Suarez Simply Crafty Creations by Sandy S.

Today I created a gorgeous family tree for myself! This was a kit I have had for years!!
The tree is actually pressed wood and I painted it and covered it with paper then screwed in the hardware and hung my photos. The photos are also on pressed wood frames.
It was a time consuming project but so worth it!
I added my boys at the top, then My husband and I below them, with each of our parents below us. So it's kind of a reversed family tree! But I love it!

I also created a layout featuring an SVG file from Miss Kate Cuttables along with some diecuts and paper from an older company Storytellers Club (remember them?). I also incorporated some chipboard embellishments from BoBunny.
Everything came together beautifully!

My family photos are going to look amazing on this layout!!

Thank you for joining us today and please continue on to Cindy Gress Messer from In Love with PAPER!
