A Long, Hard Day


I have been working through pictures that I have of me and my brother as children. I was lucky to have a mother who happened to be a shutterbug. I remember that we went to CVS to pick up a set of prints at least  once every other week. Granted not all of these are scrappable (not a word) but I am going to try and scrap as many of them as I can...So as promised here is my second layout that I completed this week. 


This picture of my brother was taken at the USS Yorktown in Charleston, SC. We had so much fun climbing around that ship. In fact my dad took my brother, husband and me out to dinner Sunday night for my husbands birthday and we were talking about this trip. Jacob (my brother) said that the memory that stands out the most his mind is climbing the ladders through the hatches and that he remembers being exhausted by the time we got to the Captains Deck. Hence the picture of a sun-burnt 11 yr old resting in a Captains Chair. 


On to the layout. I used some of the new My Minds Eye Collectible Collection. The "Love" sticker you see in that corner is actually a tab to pull out for hidden journaling. The envelope that it is in as well as the washi tape on the side are both Recollections Brand from Micheal's.

The Relax chipboard scrabble tiles are from Basic Grey Fact or Fiction Line. We do not have a Jo'Anns anywhere close to me so when I was sent to Columbia for work I asked my husband to stop and let me run in so that I could grab anything from that line. I got the Chipboard Alphas and the Snippets. 

Wasn't he just the cutest kid!!
I love the pattern in that green base paper. I am going to have to order at least two more sheets.


And for the last picture. I really should mist before I put my base layers down as I seem to get it everywhere. This layout will be going to my mom for her birthday pages. I give her 4-5 pages every year for her birthday and Christmas.  

The journaling next to the picture says "I am so very happy to have you in my life. Never forget how special you are to me. You are Kind, Sweet and Silly." Perfect for my mom to my brother. 

Leave me a comment...I love reading them!!!
