forever brothers

I love pictures like this were my boys are just loving and playing with each other. It just melts my heart! I decided to play along again this month with Black With Two. There colors this month were black with blue and yellow. Amazing colors!! Here is my layout:

I used sketch #172 from Creative Scrappers:

Here are some detailed photos:

The quote, Brothers Forever, is by Patsy Gaut:

I'll look after
you always and
I'll take your

Even though
we grow up
and travel far
and wide-

But I'll
let no one
hurt you or
tease you today

Cause I'm
your big
brother and
beside you I'll

I handstitched my circle twice, and adhered my pp. I popped up my matted photos and also a few of the title letters, as well as the yellow flags on the banner. I added the photo corners, and used my cricut cartridge, boys will be boys, for all the stars. I added some brads, metallic stars and some paper clips as well.

I am also entering this into the Sweet Peach Crop Hop: Back to school crop/Use office supplies challenge.

For this layout, I used:
  • Colorbok cardstock (black)
  • scrap cardstock (yellow and blue)
  • DCWV, Lemon Flower Stack, pp
  • Colorbok pp
  • scrap paper
  • AC Thickers, Poolside, Foam glitter alphas
  • Fancy Pants, Beach Bum, alphas (yellow)
  • Stickopotamus, alphas (blue)
  • Bella Blvd, Mr. Boy, alpha & bits sticker sheet, photo corners
  • Bella Blvd, Mr. Boy, Chit Chat, adhesive chipboard stickers
  • Crate Paper, Toy Box Collection, Phrases, designer journal stickers
  • SpareParts, by TPS, brads
