Cousins

This is another negative space challenge page. I'm loving these layouts! I love the simplicity and the clean look. I also love that the photo is definitely the main focus.


This is a photo from 2005, and it is my girls with their younger cousins. These cousins are on my husband's side of the family. Isn't this the cutest photo? I used Basic Grey papers. I cut two strips from a dotted sheet, and I created the criss-cross border on the page. The "cousins" title is chip chatter chipboard letters. That's it. Easy as can be, but I like it!

I'm counting down the days this week, because spring break starts for my girls when they get home from school on Thursday! I can't wait! They can definitely use the break, and I love when they're at home! Thanks for stopping by!
