{i am aunt patti.}


{because of these awesome people...i am aunt patti.}

I was inspired this week by Pamela's sketch #237 at Scrapbook Challenges. I really, really love this sketch...and I so love my lo!!! Probably because I {adore} every one of these kids! There are 15 nieces and nephews on this lo - how lucky am I? Very, I say! :)

My lo list of ingredients is simple. I used gray Bazzill for my background, jillibean soup flowers, Basic Gray fabric covered brads, My Little Shoebox letter stickers for the kid's names, Prima black letter stickers, more bazzill w/computer generated journaling, a MS heart punch and some machine stitching. Please note - I took every one of these photos except for my nephew Jimmy (pictured here with his wife. They live in Michigan - and rather than use an older photo, I cut apart their Christmas card.) :)

{{The kids on the left page are from the hub's side. Kids on the right are from my side of the family. They are all awesome!}}

Hope you have plans for a week-end filled with whatever it is you want to do (which means not just chores and commitments)! Sounds good to me. :)

Thanks, Scrapbook Challenges for this sketch to work with!!!

Thanks to all of my bloggin' friends for stoppin' by!

hugs, patti
