A Day At The Park

Once again, the ladies at Stuck on U Sketches have another fabulous sketch... I just can't help but play along! The sketch is from Becky Fleck over at Pagemaps!

These pictures were taken the summer of '07 and are of my daughter Lauren with her cousin Brayden. These two cousins were born just a few months apart and are pretty good buddies. I was looking back over several pictures this past week and I have so many of the two of them together. But they really had no choice... my baby sister is my bestest buddy and we hang out A LOT!! They learned early that they were going to be spending a lot of time together so they might as well enjoy it!!  LOL!!  You will be seeing a lot more of these two darlings in the future... there are just so many photos!! :)
Supplies used:
Paper: Making Memories - Chloe's Closet
Cricut: Lyrical Letters
Chipboard: Thickers and others from my stash
Flower: Prima blinged up with Stickles
Misc. Brads and Fibers
This also qualifies for the challenge at Practical Scrappers which is to use chipboard.

Thank you for joining us at SOUS again this week Barb, its always a pleasure for us to see what you can create using these sketches..this one was a bit challenging for me, so I tried keeping mine simple..LOL :D

hey hey...I think it is a huge blessing to have ones we care about have children grow up with our children! my childhood BFF has 2 boys around the ages on my older 2 and they all get along so well, like cousins!
makes me really look forward to seeing more!
when you get a chance you'll have to write me and remember me each of your kids names and how old they are (if you don't mind)
really great page, fun papers but those pix take the cake!!

What a cute layout! The colors are fabulous and the story is wonderful. My ex-boss' son and my youngest daughter were a couple of months apart in age and we used to constantly be together when the kids were small - family vacations together, play dates every weekend, etc. There are so many photos of them together and I love looking at them and remembering all the great times we shared before we all moved to different parts of the country.
Thanks for sharing your layout and story with us on Practical Scrappers.

Barb, such a fun page! I love those photos and the dps are yummy! Your chipboard is fab. You always do the best layouts. I really like getting more photos on the page like this one. Oh, and I can't forget the delish green flower. You are always such an inspiration to me! Thanks for playing again this week at Practical Scrappers!
