Bimini Moose Bi-Weekly Challenge #12

Welcome back to another great SCRAPBOOK challenge!
Always Anything Goes
Twist is Optional

Do you have a favorite Aunt or Uncle? What is it about them that makes them so special to you? Include a photo and tell us all about it for this Optional TWIST - SPECIFIC FAMILY MEMBER. Or maybe you have a family member that went on an exciting trip (without you - what nerve LOL), and you'd like to show pictures of your son or daughter or other family member overseas or off to summer camp for the first time or leaving for college or getting married or having a baby or or or.... I'm sure you can think of lots of reasons to scrap a specific family member. We can't wait to see!

For my project life layout,I couldn't pick just one specific family member,
so I did a layout of both my kids Brittany(25) and Tyler(22) they are my world and they have the best relationship any siblings could have.I have always stressed to them while growing up that they are all they have is each other and to always have each others back and they have done just that so far.I couldn't ask for anything more!!!!I love these two to the moon and back 100X's.

These are just a few pictures of them together for halloween,Tyler taking his sister for a ride on his new motorcycle,the two of them on the beach when we went back to Hawaii and the two of them on a night out in Iowa City posing with the Hawkeye!!!

supplies used;
*we r memory keepers Teresa Collins "Quoted"
(notice the clear over lay filler cards) sooo cool!!!
this set also had filler cards with a lot of bling
*scrapbook pattern paper
*stamp "my favorite peeps" by Virginia Turtle
*collage photo by-photo grid phone app
