Family Portrait

I just got my Magnolia Ink magazine and in the back I noticed a Contest! The contest is to use Magnolia stamps to make a portrait of your family! I thought...oooohhh how fun!!!! I knew right away which image I would use for me, because I am a teacher & I wear glasses...and I used to wear pigtails when I had long hair, so this Tilda reminds me of ME!! Tim loves to fish, so I used this older image of Edwin fishing - only thing is, Tim is BALD, but that's OK!!!! Then I added our "kids" - Brick (on the left), Minty (white dog- she should be smaller but couldn't figure out how to do it), and Tux (our black & white diabetic cat!). You can get all of these images at Simon Says Stamp!!! They have a HUGE selection!!!

I think it is a pretty accurate family portrait, although I'm sure Tim would rather have Edwin racing RC cars...since that is his NEW hobby!!!! LOL

I cut out our name with my Cricut machine, added some ribbon and a flower! I am pretty sure it won't win, but hey, it was totally FUN to make!!!! I think I will try to find a long frame and frame it for our office wall!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!! If you've made a family portrait for this contest, I'd love to see them!! So leave me a link in the comments so I can go have a peek!!!!!
