Cousins...forever friends

For this morning scrapbook page I combined the hand stamped sentiments color challenge with a sketch I found on Pinterest, OF COURSE.  It is from Allison Davis.  This is the first time I have ever played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments and I absolutely love the color combination they have given us this week.  I was super inspired by Elizabeth Price's banner on her adorable card and had to recreate it on my page.
Do these colors not just scream warm weather.  Maybe it is just me sitting here bundled up in my jacket feeling like my house could blow down any minute from the wind here.  But anyways these colors and this sketch were perfect for some pictures I had of my kids playing with their cousins last August.  I only had one really good picture so this sketch was great to include the not so great as smaller ones.  

 I find great joy in watching my kids build lasting friendships with their cousins.  The title says "Cousins are those childhood playmates who grow up to be forever friends."  My kids have been blessed with some pretty amazing cousins on both sides of the family.  I am sure they will have a lot of "Forever Friends."
