r x 4

No, that isn't a math thing...I'm talking about my siblings and myself. We are all R's. Rebecca, Robert (Rob), Rachel and Rhea. My parents and also R's. Robert and Reba. I always thought that was kind of fun. When we went to Jester's for my dad's birthday, they got a good laugh out of all of us R's. Especially when my brother in law "Roger" said his name. You can imagine...
I scrapped these photos Tuesday night and kept looking at them....do they need more? But I decided to just go with them as they were.
The background paper is from Cosmo Cricket and I love the rugged simplicity of it. The only problem is...I am SO used to using Stampin' Up! paper and being able to coordinate my colors....it is hard with other papers. The closest color I could find to go with this was Barely Banana and Chocolate chip. I think it works. I added some Rusty Pickly rick rack...honeslty just because my mother HATES rick rack. Even saying the word makes her cringe. So, what would be better on a picture of all of her kids? LOL The swirly and the smile stamps are from Becky Higgins, the clear flowers from Heidi Swapp, the metal tag from...memory makers I think, and the chip board letters/numer are from various places. They were all actually patterned on the front but I sanded them off and inked then with a chocolate chip craft pad. The rhinestone brads are Stampin' Up!. I used a 1/8" hole punch to punch the hole in the flower and then used my paper snips to poke a small slit in my background paper so I could put the brad through and not have the prongs showing from the front.
These photos are from a year ago when I went to Arizona with Thorin for his cousin Jake's birthday. They have close birthdays so it was a treat for them to be together. Jake had come her for Thorin's birthday too.
