Family Reunion with Claire

(click photo to enlarge)

What's more fun than a family reunion?
Ours are always filled with laughter, hugs, jokes, games, good food and more.
Aunts, uncles, and cousins bring their smiles and memories to share.

At our 2009 reunion, we numbered more than 100 of all ages,
and a highlight was the silent auction table (no money involved, just names)
where handmade and awesome elephant gift prizes were given away.

The beautiful Elling quilt wall hanging (in the family photos) 
made by our cousin Peggy,
was one awesome gift giveaway, 
and it was won by our cousin Vickie 
(who is in yellow, smiling so big in the first page photo). 

At this reunion each of the seven Elling siblings' families wore a 
specific color shirt -- some went to great lengths to have their shirts
printed with special family trees and sayings.

To keep this to a two-page layout,
I used the fantastic Flip Flaps on page 2
so that each family group and special memory would be represented.
(Some aren't visible here since they are underneath the top layers.)

I used:
Claire Paper Packet (I love the peach, pink, and navy combo)
Claire Complements (canvas sentiments on pp 1 and 2)
Irresistables ("Family" title p 1)

The new CTMH Cricut ARTBOOKING Cartridge
available to customers August 1st!

Check out my business site here!

I cut the one-piece peach tree & frame for page 1
from the Claire CS at 11 inches.

Thanks to Rebecca Brown for sharing her cart while mine 
is coming via Fed Ex--maybe today, please? 

I can't wait to use this Artbooking cartridge even more!
An Artbooking Workshop will be coming up.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving some love in a comment.
Blessings on your day!
