(Levi's) Family ~ 2009 ~ The Pink Elephant Challenge No. 4 ~ Top 3 Winner over at Prairy Fairy Friday!!

Hello everyone!!!!!  IIIIIIII'm baaaaaaaack!!  My SIL and her husband left today, :o( but, we had a wonderful time while they were here.....  Yesterday the kids and grand kids came over for a final get together and it was a picture perfect day...  The weather was just gorgeous!!!  I already miss them, but, we will see them again sometime this summer when we go back for a visit...
Okay on with my layout before I need a tissue.  This is a photo my DIL gave me yesterday and ask me to scrap it for her.  This was taken around Thanksgiving last year probably at her parents.  I also did this for the challenge over at The Pink Elephant, which is to use Chipboard and Paint on your layout...  I had this beautiful Scroll Chipboard piece that I just received in my May Swirlydoos Kit and decided to work round that, and the photo that my DIL Angela, gave me yesterday.  (My son should have taken off that silly cap, so that we could see all of his face!!! oh well!!)  So this is what I came up with... Hope you like it.
It also qualifies for a few challenges which are :
The Pink Elephant ~ Chipboard and Paint

Glad you enjoyed your company! This layout is stunning. I love the chipboard scroll down the side. I need to look for that. Your arrangement of the flowers is so perfect and love the distressing. All of it so compliments the beautiful family photo.
