CKCB April Challenge #1!

Hope you were inspired by all of the kits we put together for you and that you dug into your stash and made your own kit!  So, here we are, ready for April Challenge # 1! A  photo challenge!
I focused on the wonderful greens & yellows....and thought- hmm...a "family tree?"

This is my cousin Eric- not a cousin by blood but we don't care...we've been "cousins" since we were about 18 years old and his family is my family till death do us part.  We don't see each other as often as we'd like, but it's like time never's passed once we do get together.  When my niece died last month, there wasn't anyone else (besides his momma) that I wanted there by my side at the funeral. We got together the next day and caught up on life stuff and it was such a stress reliver!


"The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life."  ~Richard Bach ~  
Be inspired by the photo and come on by the Counterfeit Challenge Blog  and link us (Mr. Linky on the right) up to your project and your kit! We want to be inspired by YOU!

LOVE this layout! The colors are gorgeous and great use of the inspiration. The little butterflies are perfect. So sorry to hear about your niece's passing.

This is such a beautiful layout - I love the leading line of the little butterflies and all of the negative space. I'm also loving how, despite the bright colours, your layouts don't seem overwhelming. You've created such lovely balance.

A really lovely page. I hope you will record the story you told us about your cousin on here somewhere? Perhaps the back of the layout because the front is so beautifully designed. The trail of butterflies evokes that path stretching ahead to the distance so well. Wonderfully balanced.

I'm shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I'm not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, very good blog!
