BAND O' BROTHERS

Happy Wednesday everyone!  (and a very Happy Birthday to my little brother John!).  Today's layout is one of my favorites of the bunch that I created for Studio Calico this month.  I used mostly the Mossy Knoll add on with a few bits and pieces from the other kits.  This add on just screamed boy to me and those Hardcover Thickers ... well you know how much I love them!  LOL


I love this picture of my boys with two of their besties who happen to be another set of brothers.  The similarities between our boys is more than coincidental and makes me think these four boys were just destined to be friends.  My boys are named Darian and Brandon, the other boys (my friend Liz's sons) are named Brendan and Darren.  Darian and Brendan have birthdays just one day apart and have been together in class for both kindergarten and 1st grade.  When all four boys get together to play it is boyhood (and brotherhood) at its finest and they make up one big merry band o' brothers!


I love these little banner flags from Jenni Bowlin and can see myself using them on lots of future layouts.  You can also see that I used some Mister Huey's in Calico White for a little more interest and detail.  And twine - I love to add baker's twine here and there and the dark blue and white twine was the perfect addition to my little ticket.  I am off to see the 1st grade class lead their whole school meeting this morning - Darian has a speaking part and he is just so excited about it all.  Wish him luck!  :)
