Cousins

Hi everyone!!  Today I have another layout to share with you.

I really enjoyed spending time with all my cousins last month.  It had actually been quite awhile since I'd seen them.  But one thing hadn't changed...there's no shortage of females in our group.  Including my own family, the group of cousins includes 8 girls and 2 boys.  I wanted to make a layout about my cousins, so I pulled out the fabulous Paper Cottage collection from BasicGrey and made this:


I really really really LOVE this collection.  :)

I do this often in my layouts, but I did a lot of clustering.  I clustered the cool chipboard embellishments near the bottom.  I clustered the girl photos.  And I clustered my male cousin and the title.  But all three distinct clusters.

I really love those felt bows that I added to the layout.  :)

Here are some close up's:


And I thought I'd share a tip with you.  Sometimes on the back of my layouts, I will add a label sticker with the names of each person, left to right, on it.  That way I don't have to include it on the front of the page, but the information is still there for others who may want to know in the future.  Really it depends on the page.  But I did do that on this one.

Well thanks for stopping in today!  I hope you have a fabulous day!!
