IMG_7494Sharp Family Year in Review by Amanda Jane Jones

Remember my Year in Review Giveaway this past November? Well Abby Sharp was the winner. I so enjoyed getting to know her family through their "stats." I think my favorite is Milo's quote, "Why didn't you name me Antonio?" Adorable. You can get to know Abby and her sweet family from her blog.

The beautiful family photograph was taken by the oh so talented Elise Capener and you can see more of the family photo shoot here.

And of course, the incredible printing was by Colleen of Cleanwash Letterpress. She wrote to me midway through the competition and said she'd throw in a free print job for the winner! Really, it ended up being a win for me as well. She is a fabulous pressman and it was such a gift to have her print this piece. Thank you Colleen!

For my first giveaway, I was pleased with how it went. Hopefully I'll be up for it again next year.
