Families

Sorry it's been a busy day! For Christmas I made these for Jaime and Brooke (this Christmas Jordan will get one) the past couple of years. We believe in eternal families that start through marriage. Here's more on what we believe.
Here's how to do it!

You need is an 8x10 wedding portrait, a picture frame and a piece of translucent paper. For Jaime, her wedding colors were pink so I chose pink translucent paper but I couldn't find Brooke's color in time for Christmas. Adding color is a cute touch of the wedding. Easy beezy! I chose cute a candid of the bride and groom for both sisters. Also, I chose photos where they are standing somewhat apart so the line in the Family Proclamation doesn't end up cutting through either of them (especially their face!) All you need to do is print the Family Proclamation on the translucent paper. Then layer the pictures and put them in the frame. Bada bing bada boom, there you have it! Simple and beautiful.

Oh, great idea for a wedding present. It would probably work for other gifts if you use a poem or short story on translucent paper.
