My Sister

Edited 4/27 to say that this layout was featured on the Basic Grey blog!!! They chose me as one of their winners for the April Flickr challenge and I am SO excited!

---------------

Hi there my sweet friends!! I've got a new layout to share with you today that I am SO in love with. I actually started working on it Wednesday morning and didn't finish it until around 1 am today, lol! I had it sitting on my desk with the things in place but couldn't seem to glue anything down. I finally starting putting everything where I wanted it to go though and it all came together so easily after that...






Supplies: Basic Grey Konnichiwa Paper - Good Afternoon, Friendly Greetings; Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Spun Sugar, Antique Linen, Pumice Stone; Ali Edwards Stamp Sets - Family Is, Adored; American Crafts/Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Roller Date Stamp; Fiskars Flit On By Punch; Fiskars Circle Punches; EK Success Scallop Circle Punch; Basic Grey Buttons; CK Cindy Computer Font

I adore this picture of my girls. They were SO lovey towards each other that day...no arguing or fighting, even when they had to sit down for pictures! It's so funny to me how my girls can be so different from one another but still have amazing moments like this one where they mesh together perfectly. I talked about that in the journaling because I want them to know that it's ok to be different and unique, as long as you always remember to keep yourself open to new things...

Well that's it from me today! I've got some cards in the works that I'll try to get done soon and be able to share. Today started Spring Break for us so I'll have lots of time to create...as long as I can keep Madison off the computer, which is on my scrap table, lol! Wish me luck with that ok? ;)
