for all the complaining alex does about his annoying little brother, he's awfully tender hearted about the smallest dude. ;) i have no patience for sam's "i'm too tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiireeeeeeeeeeeeeed to walk" business, but he's got alex wrapped around his little finger. it really is just too sweet. my collection of alex piggybacking sam on the way home from school photos is growing like crazy, so i thought i'd use a couple on a page. i started with some veeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrry light misting, then cut a strip of fabrip and clustered my elements above and below it. the circles are cut from the new banners - i'm really loving using them one or two at a time.
this page comes with a challenge - break out the patterned paper backgrounds! you can find all of the details at the studio calico blog. i love that the subtle pattern on my background here keeps a fairly simple page from looking too sparse. you can find the full supply list here at SC or here at 2peas, depending on your shopping habits. ;)
happy wednesday! and happy early mother's day to me - matthew's making the trip to rescued junk to bring my shelves home. i'm a *wee* bit excited. =)
