A very special layout

..using this very cute sketch from the Scraproom blog.

Recently, through the magic of facebook -I was reconnected with a "long lost" cousin on my father's side of the family. Because I don't have any contact with that side of my family, it was very neat to get in touch with Krystal, as we grew up together. But, we hadn't seen each other in 17 years. We both moved away when our mothers divorced our fathers (who are brothers). The parallels in our lives though are uncanny!

We are both teachers, married to techies, with a pug mix dog! Exception being she has 2 little ones :) Since our last names changed, it made it harder for her to find me - but as she posted the day after we met for dinner "my missing piece is found". I couldn't wait to print these pics off and scrap the memory while it was still fresh! Everyone at the restaurant kept asking if we were sisters. It was such a fun night of reminiscing! We already have plans together again.

The patterned paper is by American Crafts. I "popdotted" the Cricut/Sure Cuts A Lot title for both depth and contrast.

The luscious flower is from Precocious Paper!

Thanks for looking! Do you have a facebook story?! I'd love to hear it.
