Family Easter

Group photo of my grandkids on Easter. Sometimes it's so difficult to get everyone to look at the same time! LOL  This is for the Croptoberfest Day 10 over at the Apron Strings Blog, incorporating a new technique. I've never tried the little curled papers so tried that here. Ended up with lots of sticky fingers and not sure I'd try it again, but I like trying new things! 
This is also based on The Scrappiest Sketch #87. What a fun sketch to play with! I also used the October kit from The ScrapRoom, featuring Crate 'Restoration' papers.

Thanks for Looking!
