AHSC - Cousins

One of my goals when I decided to join some design teams it was to motivate myself to get my work done and this week I was able to get another layout done. I have to admit, I need someone eeping me honest and working on my stash of pictures and when I can get some pictures scrapped it makes me happy. I love making cards but I am a scrapbooker at heart, it is who I am. 

This weeks sketch lent itself to a layout so I took advantage and did another 1 page layout. As I have said before, I typically you do not scrapbook one page layouts but there are a few events that I only have 1-2 pictures for so I am allowing myself to break out of my own biases and did what was right. 

This is a layout from when out girls met her cousins for the second time but really it was the first time. They did meet one other time but the girls were not living with us yet and they were coming over for one of their pre-move in visits and my husbands cousin and his family was visiting from Illinois. Since even being with us, meeting these additional people was a lot and they did not realize the significance of it. So when our family came back up to Canada for Thanksgiving and we got together for a play date it was like the first time they all met. The kids all got along famously and played so well together. In all the catching up and visiting it dawned on me that we did not get any pictures of the kids together and playing so at the last minute I snapped this picture, the one picture from our visit!

Products used:

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out other great designs from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!

Until next time!

PS...I am sorry about the quality of the picture, we were in the middle of a storm and I just could not get enough light anywhere to get a good shot to show off the deep rich colours of the papers. If we get a nicer day I will reshoot the picture!

I love how you are able to get some of your family memories scrapped....and I love having you share the events with us. Fabulous job making this a layout page. Stunning as always.

Thanks Michelle! I love that the sketches allow me the ability to do layouts from time to time. My goal for the year was to scrapbook more and the sketches are certainly helping me to do so! :) Brandi

Wow! This is a great layout. I'm a scrapbooker at heart too, but have gotten sidetracked lately with card making. You've inspired me! :-)
