oh brother!

I know I ALWAYS say, "this is my FAVORITE photo" but seriously?  This one CRACKS me up!

This is my mom and her younger brother--her look says it all!  And YES mom I did scrap this!! :)  I used a sketch from Elle's studio from a few weeks ago:
I loved the squares, just made them rectangles, of course I kept the butterfly!  I took the mask included in the story kit and painted over it:
 I think my favorite part of the sketch was the clouds:
I talked about them HERE on the Scrapbook Circle blog.  I LOVED mixing the different brands and sewing on the chipboard cloud (Bella Blvd.)--went through just like butter--thinking I might have to do this again SOON! 

okay summer is HERE, 108 degrees here--YUCK!  I think I'm in denial that I live in the desert and that summer is AWFUL, face feels like it will melt once you sit in the car, hot enough to cook/melt things on the sidewalk....but there is always night swimming! :)

off to make some lasagna for dinner!  Thanks for the visit today!
