         Family Love and Hugs Scrapbook Layout

Some of you may know that my brother (and best friend) was taken from us a year ago by a drunk driver.  Pictured above are some of his most treasured things; his kids and his beloved John Deere tractors.  His children put together a tractor run and benefit in his name and raised over $5,000.00 which they donated to the American Heart Association.  A friend of my niece's happened to take this picture and share it with me and this is what I came up with.  

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me or head over to my store if you need any of these supplies and remember Sale-A-Bration is going on and for every $50.00 you spend you get to choose some awesome FREE products.
