big, Big, BIG brother...

Our daughter is the youngest of four kids and the ONLY girl. So, you can imagine she is one tough little cookie. She has three great, big brothers who not only look out for her but also take their turns torturing her. hahaha But seriously, the boys are really great brothers. I snapped a photo of Shelby sitting on Brian's lap at the zoo and since I don't have many pics of the boys with Shelby individually I couldn't wait to scrap this one.

The paper strip I used for the center was just the right amount of pattern. After adhering it to my kraft background, I stuck my photo where I wanted it. The title was cut with my Slice and the Just Chillin' Teen design card and the Fonts: Essentials design card. The letters for big were cut at 1.5, 2.5 and 3.5 and brother was cut at 1.5. For my smaller letters, I used my Model 150 Xyron sticker maker. If you have issues with extra adhesive around your letters when you remove them from the film, try using your Rub-on tool to burnish around each letter first. Works like a charm. I ran some twine through some October Afternoon Campfire buttons and added them to the title. My journaling is hidden by using the old trick of tucking it behind the photo. The ribbon was misted with some Strawberry Shortcake Glimmer Mist from ScrapAce (perfect match for the Campfire Buttons!) and topped off with another button.

I am definitely lovin' the 8.5 x 11 size and will keep them coming, for now. ;)

Hey Katie!

Very cute layout! I was just wondering if you were going to be at the Scrap-Mart booth this weekend in Charlotte? I'll be there working at the Epiphany Crafts booth.
