December Daily 2012 - Day 8

We took our family photos yesterday and the shoot had two purposes.  A shot that we could use for our Christmas Card and some shots of Simone for her 5th Birthday.  I took my camera along so I could snap photos while the pro's were doing their thing except I forgot to grab the memory card out of my computer.  Thank goodness for my phone!  These were all taken over their shoulders so I would have something to include today.  Impressive to say the least for a phone photo that I was able to blow it up full size.

If you live in the Sacramento area and are looking for a photographer I cannot speak highly enough for Katherine and Nikki at Essence Photography.  They did an amazing job and I know their photos will be 1,000 times better than these from my phone. 

Here is the spread

I purchased the little chalkboard that Simone is holding at Michael's, you can find it in the wedding section and I did the lettering myself.  The right side is mostly digital, the background paper is an old set from Elle's Studio, I couldn't find it online so it might not be available anymore.  The stars I printed out onto vellum and then embossed with Zing Gold Glitter embossing powder.  I made the tag digitally and printed it on vellum and the number came from the Crate set that I've used throughout so far. The photos were printed on the background paper I just cut a slit along the edge of the photos and tucked the stars in.

Here is the insert.

It's one of the vellum sheet's that came with Kelly's kit.  I added some vellum pieces from Crate.  I wanted to use brads to hold them down then I realized they would show so I just stuck red rhinestones down to look like brads.

I hope your day eight was great too!
