Thanks for Hopping In!!!  You should have arrived here from the incredible Carole's blog!

Here is my layout (yes, no cards here, or very few!!), featuring one of this month's Krafty Quotes, a scripture phrase from I Corinthians:


I used some fabulous text paper from October Afternoon, the words worked perfectly with what I wanted to convey about my boys.  I used a Tim Holtz mask with some brown cordoruy distress ink to create the title, then trimmed around it and popped it up on the page.  I painted some areas, glimmer misted, distressed and tore up the paper edges.  Maya Road has incredible chipboard packages, and the hearts and love words came in a set. I cut out the stars from some Fancy Pants ribbon, and used some Prima pearls scattered around.  The close up of the quote:


The quote was stamped on a shipping tag in Archival Ink, and the edges were inked up and the tag layered over a couple others.  

I love seeing my two guys so happy together.  Sure they fight and drive me crazy but then they hug and make up, and it brings tears to my eyes.  Brothers.  Love them so.  :)

Your next stop on the hop is the Moonlight Whispers creator herself....ANNIE!!  So in love with her work!!

Thanks again for popping in, and remember to leave a comment on all of the blogs for a chance to win!!
