This is One of Becky's Sketches of CK Mag...
I decided to do this layout of my husbandís side of the family. He has five siblings and each year more spouses and children are added. Years ago we began a tradition of a family photo at our Thanksgiving gathering to capture just how much our family was growing. I wanted to be able to put each family group along the top...Mom and Dad, and each of their childrenís families (with the exception of the twins who are not married yet- until that time, they kind of come as a set! ). The bottom left photo was a great place for the large family photo, and the right main photo just right for the photo of Mom, Dad and kids.

Journaling reads:

Years ago our family began a tradition of having a family photo taken at our annual Thanksgiving gathering. We wanted to record how our family was changing and growing over time-not only by getting older, but in numbers as well, with births and new marriages. Through these photos we are also able to see evidence of Godís blessings and enduring love. It is clear when we look back over these pictures, that God has blessed our family with life, love, happiness, health, and prosperity. But one of our greatest blessings is each other.

The tag reads:
