Word Art Wednesday #83

It's Word Art Wednesday time!  This week's word art comes from the Book of Psalms...

My maternal grandparents had lots of children and I suspect that they were pretty happy.  The photo on my layout today is of some of my mother's siblings. It was taken sometime in the 1940's.  My mom was the oldest, the children pictured were the youngest and there were a few in between.  I only have one brother and one child so I often wonder what it's like to grow up in a big family.  I'm guessing with lots of people around there's never a dull moment and not lots of quiet either.

The black lace border above the green ribbon on my layout is actually a digi stamp from one of today's sponsors Milk Coffee Digi Stamps.  It was so easy to print on my background cardstock and I love how it looks on the page. My patterned paper is by Webster's Pages,  one of my go to companies for my grandmother's album.

I hope you join the Word Art Wednesday challenge this week. Feel free to save today's word art to your computer for your personal use.

  3. Darling layout. I was one of 3 and then when I was 16 my Mom added one more to the bunch. It was a crazy mix of siblings we had, then she married a man with 2 sons. At that point it turned into this weird version of the brady bunch. Ha! Thank the good Lord I only had 2 years left at home.
    Hope your doing well, hugs.

  4. Beautiful layout and wonderful vintage photo, Gemeil. I can say vintage because that was when I was a child. Love the look of lace.

  5. Such a beautiful layout. I love how you used the digi. Would love to see a tutorial on how to print on 12x12 paper or did you just print it on small paper. Either way it work out and I love it. And I love the coloring of the kids. I have never thought of this. And having two girls can be a handful but its joy in hearing the sweet sound of my babies. My grandmother had 13 kids on my dad side. And my mom's mother had 8 kids. LOL so many aunts and uncles and you can only image my cousins. LOL TFS AJ-

  6. Gorgeous LO, Gemiel!! This verse fits the image perfectly!!

  7. You are so great with heritage photos. I'm sure you are the historian of the family. I can imagine the family getting together and viewing your sweet pages!
