Here is what the sketch inspired me to make..

All scraps!  Even the main mat is missing a section that I had cut out for something else
The letters are a mix of Thickers, Creative Memories, CTMH and some way off brand that I found on clearance 
I have four grandsons, these are the 'middle' two, they are a year apart and even though they are as different as day and night they seem to want to hang around each other all the time. The reason for the "K"'s is that is a page in one of the boys' ABC's of book and I needed a "K" page (yeah a stretch I know)..... I swear we do feed them too!  Can you believe these two little guys play tackle football????

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, the
next stop is Ellen ~

The Scraps To Treasures Team has to share!

OMG, what adorable "kousins". I love the "sexy muscles" pose, and think it's ADORABLE that they want to spend so much time together. In fact, I am MUCH kloser with my kousins than I am with any of my siblings. Kould it be that absence makes the heart grow fonder??!

It's always nice hopping with you, Liz.
