Be Yourself

If there are any two people in the world that are always just who they are, it's my husband and his twin brother.  This morning, my brother in-law was admitted to the ICU for bleeding on his brain.  
My husband, of course, is there, but while I've been waiting to hear news I busied myself by making this layout of the two of them.  


I've used only a 2-1/2" strip of For Always chevron paper, otherwise this layout is black and white daisy cardstock.  I re-inked my black ink pad to get the richest color possible from my dye ink.  I've used several stamp sets - All the Details, Sightseer, Washi Wonder, Family Love, and Wheel of Life.  That big spinner works perfectly on this page.  I used my Artbooking cartridge to make the Polaroid frame and "be yourself."  The gathered ribbon is ruby chevron with some black twine, and I finished it all off with some discontinued brads from my stash.  My inspiration for this layout came from Sketch #105 at Sketch Savvy.

Scrapbooking is therapeutic.  Paper and stamps are the first place I go when I am praying about something.  I am very certain that there are a lot of you who can relate.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I really appreciate that you take the time to visit me!

Oh honey, I'm sorry. I hope the doctors can make him better, and that he can heal quickly. Sounds scary. :(
