I hope everyone had...

... a nice Labor Day Weekend.  We hung around the house mostly.  Did a little bit of yard work.  Grilled some steaks and had corn on the cob.  It was a nice relaxing weekend.

I finally have a moment to share a layout that was inspired by this photo.

This photo is for the latest challenge (an inspiration challenge)at Basic Grey Challenges.

I decided to do a layout this week and I used a photo of my daughter and my niece, Brantley.  Brantley, my sister, and mother came to visit us in July for Caden's 4th birthday party.  This photo was taken during the party.  Aren't they the sweetest looking children.  Looks can be deceiving-LOL!  They get along fairly well but I'm not sure if they would if they lived close together. My cousin and I used to fight with each other all the time when we were kids.   Over a thousand miles separate these two, so when they can come for a visit it is nice to have a cousin to play with.

I also used a sketch from the Page Map Blog for there current sketch challenge.  You still have some time to submit a layout of your own.  The Basic Grey lines I used are Periphery and Marrakech. 

The prize pack is awesome, so check them out when you have a chance.

Well that's all for my brief post.  I wanted to wish my fellow teamie, Anthea, a belated happy birthday.  Keep an eye out in the next few weeks for a card from the States.

Have a great week!
