Family Tree ~ Crafting with my sister

Wow! It's been along time since I've posted any craftiness! My crafting mojo has been on vacation for the last few weeks.
A week ago my sister came to visit for a few days and while she was visiting she asked me if I could help her with a project that she wanted to make for her in-laws and also for our parents for Christmas. She hates crafting but she is really in to family history so for Christmas she wanted to make "Family Tree" posters.

The top picture is my sister working on her in-laws poster. This one was pretty easy for us to do once we finally figured out what it is we really wanted to do.
For the posters we chose to put the Grandparents in the big center tree and all of their kids are the smaller trees and the Grandkids are the apples
Our family was a little more difficult since we have 16 kids and 40+ Grandkids so fitting it all on the board was a little tricky.
My sister had to go home before we were able to complete the project but I gave her the cartridges we were using so she can finish it with our mom's Cricut and hopefully she will send me pictures of the completed project so I can post them.
I hope you and that you all have a great night!
