I've been so excited to share this, but had to wait until I was sure that my brother and his wife had opened their Christmas gifts! I am so happy with how this turned out. They had their first baby in September, my sweet little niece Jessica. I wanted to make them a gift that represented how their "family story" has taken shape over the past year.
I got the tray from Altered Angel, and was inspired by this similar project from my very talented friend Chris Hertel. I wish I could take credit for the awesome photos, but with the exception of the two wedding pictures in the top row (which I took), the rest of the pictures were taken by my sister-in-law's sister Linda Hoang, a truly gifted photographer! Big thanks to Linda for allowing me to use them!
Here are a couple of close-ups.
