My brother looks like a very proud daddy cradling his baby Zoe in his arms. It is his first baby with his lady love, Natashia. They produced a precious little PRINCESS. Enjoy!
This envelope was created for a friend's birthday. Her third child is 'King' and he is a French poodle. I gifted her one of my favorite cards.

These are some close up photos of little Zoe whose maternal grandmother has nicknamed "bug". She reminds me of a baby ladybug. I can hardly wait to meet her in person.
This page and photo's meaning are pretty self explanatory, but they highlight the relationship between my sister-in-law and her first baby. Enjoy!

Babies in our family have certain facial features that are unmistakeable. In our case we have chubby cheeks, pouty lips, lotsa hair and an upside down "V" under the bottom lip. The photo of Zoe I used shows those features and how peacefully adorable she looks while sleeping.

A precious jewel has been added to our family, my niece Zoe. This is the cover of her baby album complete with pearls, crystals and gems. Welcome to the world baby girl!

Our family is spread out through countries and islands. This page features three of my cousins who grew up in Hawaii. Their father worked in the hotel industry before retiring to enjoy his golden years.

This page features another prized photo from Anthony Isambert's collection. I believe it was one of his childhood birthday parties cradled in his father's arms. My childhood memories also resembled happy scenes like this one.

The wonderful thing about researching your family tree is finding little surprises along the way. One of these surprises came when I found a weathered New York chauffeur's license with my grandfather's photo on it. I had no idea he had done this back in 1928. It added an extra piece of the puzzle for my mother's father. Enjoy my walk down memory lane!

Our family is anxiously awaiting the arrival of little Zoe. It seems she is already asserting herself, since she will not be rushed, regardless of 7 minute apart contractions. Natashia has nurtured our little munchkin through 9 very difficult months. The time is almost here!
Today's page shows Yoshi in the stands waiting for his turn in the ring. It took me a few seconds to come up with the title, but once I did the font had to be perfect. Enjoy!

That moment when a couple pledges their love to one another surrounded by family and friends, defines love. Today's page shows a timeless photo of two people who took that oath.

I get misty when I see people in love. In a way it may be because I have yet to find that elusive 'true love'. Don't get me wrong there are plenty of impostors out there, but you can tell when it's the real thing. The photos on this page show that this is the real thing. Congrats Sabrina and Donald your love inspires me.

The photo I chose to feature on today's page shows my aunt on one of her birthdays. It reminded me of a portrait of a princess with her lovely opulent dress. The birthday cake on the photo is almost an accessory since you just focus on her adorable smile. Enjoy!

The photo on this page was taken after my cousin Anthony was born. His daddy, Mike, got into his crib to celebrate with his adult sized bottle. It was a proud and funny moment at the same time. In the background you can still see boxes that need to be unpacked. What first time parent can't relate to that?!
Our uncle Mike served proudly in the Army. While in service his first born son, my cousin Anthony, was born in Germany. It was my cousin who provided me these wonderful photos. Scrappad is still one of my favorite apps on my iPad mini.

My brother and my cousin have been closer than brothers all their lives. So when I was envisioning a brotherhood page I knew it had to be about them. The photos I chose show their bond through the years. Enjoy!
My family is full of gifted people. One of them is my cousin Anthony, who is a hairstylist, make-up artist, editor-in-chief. We all need to be thankful every day for the blessings of family.
