Cousins Layout

Hi Everyone,
This has been a week and a 1/2...I hope it starts to get a little better soon....

This is one of my fav layouts I've done so far. It's of Ethan playing with his cousin's, my twin nieces. They have such a good time together...

I cut the border title cousins using my Silhouette. I just picked a font that I already had on my computer and welded it together. I don't remember what font it was though?

Of course the paper is all October Afternoon and from a variety of collections...

I used the Just the Ticket Paper Trey Ink Stamp and Die set to create the little tag and then the 
Buttons #1 Die with the same pattern paper I used for the layout...

Pattern Paper: October Afternoon
Cardstock: Bazzil Brown
Stamp Sets: Just the Ticket, Bitty Backgrounds Blocks (Paper Trey Ink), Calendar (Jillibean Soup)
Inks: Malted Milk, Brown Sugar, Stick Candy (Jenni Bowlin) (on sale at Joann'
Punches/Dies: Postage Stamp Punch (Fiskar), Just the Ticket Die (Paper Trey Ink), Buttons #1 (Paper Trey Ink)
Die Cutting: Silhouette SD
Misc: Twine (Paper Trey Ink), Sewing

Thanks everyone and have a great Wednesday.
