Updated Family Portrait

Now that we know the baby is a boy, I thought it was time for an updated family portrait card. I actually made this for a contest the my 5th upline, Christina Crawford, had at her last group meeting. The contest category was "Welcome Baby" and I decided to participate in the contest when I woke up at 5am the morning of the meeting.

So, I stamped the card quickly, cut all the pieces, grabbed some markers and my adhesive and headed out the door. I had to be at a friend's house at 6am in order to get to the meeting on time. (It is about 1.5 hours away in New York.)

I colored the card once we got to the meeting place. As you can see, I missed the dad's pants! I guess it's no wonder that I didn't win that day. ;) Don't feel too bad for me though because I won the grand door prize -- a full set of Stampin' Up! markers!! I couldn't even believe it.

The card measures 4 1/4 x 4 1/4" square. The layout is from Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #17.

Stamps: All in the Family, Short & Sweet
Ink: Stazon Timber Brown
Card stock: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Bashful Blue Taffeta
Ribbon
Tools: Coluzzle, Pop-up Glue Dots, Markers
