This week at Made With Love, I challenged myself to use only 1 piece of patterned paper to make a layout. So I used only this! No store-bought embellishments (except for the tags, twines and buttons which are already in my stash). Talk about cheap page =)
This layout, showing my kids and their cousins, is about TEAMWORK. Cousin teamwork. I grew up loving my cousins, enjoying their company, always looking forward to holidays and reunions so we could all get together and try to outdo each other's laughs (I think I win that all the time. I laugh the loudest, fyi!). So I want my kids to grow up loving their cousins too.
