Elephant for You

Back in August, my family road-tripped to Wisconsin for a reunion with my Mom's extended side of the family.  We all gather together every 5 years -- from my great-grandparents' generation all the way down.  This year, the oldest living member of the family is 92, and the youngest was born the day before the reunion -- obviously, he wasn't in attendance though as he and his mama were resting in the quiet of their hospital room.

At the reunion, I took dozens, err... hundreds of pictures.  Upon returning home, I sorted all the pictures, trashed the bad ones, and burned the rest onto dvds to be sent to a member from each branch of the top of the family tree.  There are nine branches stemming from my great-grandparents so I knew I couldn't make discs for each person.  I'd probably still be burning discs if I tried!!  Luckily the family agreed and were okay with reaching out to their appointed family member to get a copy of the disc.  Whew...

Anyways, I wanted to include a little note with each disc I mailed so I came up with a simple 4x4 card using some cardstock, washi tape, and stamps.  Our family has a unique obsession with white elephants as my great-grandparents owned a tavern called the White Elephant in Wisconsin.

Supplies used:
*Recollections cardstock
*Paper Studio washi tape
*Close to My Heart ink
*Stamp set from my stash

Until next time, remember to design it with {heart}!
