Pages with Papertrey Challenge

On the PTI forum there is a challenge hosted by forum member Leigh and I decided to join in :) I love using my stamps on LO's and had a lot of fun with this one. The challenge was to use the colors, white, black and harvest gold. I had to cheat a bit as I don't have any harvest gold cardstock, but I figured lemon tart was close enough. My ink is CTMH, but very similar to harvest gold. It was a bit of an extra challenge to use a holiday photo and this one just fit the bill. It's a photo taken of my family 4 Christmases ago and I wanted to journal a bit about how much has changed in 4 years, so the very unlikely color scheme worked. I used the new PTI fillagree border, Stiches and Swirls for the background (boy do I love the pp it makes!) and Vintage labels. The alpha is a CTMH set called Field Alphabet.

Lots has changed in 4 years. We've moved twice, the final time being into our own home we love, we've gained many true and supportive friendships and we've grown by 2 family members! God has certianly been good:) Thanks for stopping by...I so appreicate your visit!
