Brotherly Love

This layout is featured on's online magazine! (Nov 2010) Please go to for all the details!

I created this layout using the wonderfully vivid new line by My Mind's Eye called So Sophie. The layout is about our adventure to the annual Medieval Fair this last Spring. Neatly tucked away under the image is another image of the boys holding hands as they walk up to the fair. Also included is my narrative about the day and their silly hats.

The insert reads as follows...The annual Medieval Fair at Reeve's Park. What a festivity of eccentric sights and fantasies all wrapped into one. There is tons to see, from fairies & mermaids to knights & kings. Jack tackled the bungee jump again, completely fearless. Add to it, the elephant & camel rides and the oh so yummy food, you guys never wanted to leave. The weather had been very cold, rainy & windy on Saturday, so we decided to take a chance and go on Sunday afternoon. Talk about PERFECT weather, we all had a great time. You both were bundled up in your matching red sweaters and those oh so crazy & colorfully fun beenie hats. Daddy found those for you guys at an antique store down in McAlester this spring. The hats are extremely old and very unusual. Made out of different panels of tan, aqua and red leather, they are covered in tiny trinkets that apparently would have come from old Cracker Jacks back in the 1940's. Daddy did some research, and we also found that the hats were possibly sold at the World's Fair back in the 40's as well. Either way, the hats are so cool and we hope that you all will treasure them for many years to come. Not to mention that you both look like the "Little Rascals!"

As for this picture, all I can think of when I look at it is pure LOVE. Jack you are such a nurturing big brother to Sam. Sam looks up to you for everything. He copies everything you do, and goes to you for protection. I hope that he always feels that you will be there to protect him as I hope he will always be there for you. Talk about a troublesome duo when you are together, but I wouldn't have it any other way!
