Little brother layout with Chomas Creations embossing kit

One of the happiest days of my 13 year old's life was when he grew taller then his 17 year old big sister!  It happened last summer, but this picture is funny as you can see the 6 inches he has on her even better! 
I've been scrappin over 13 years now!  I have a lot of scrap crap (as I refer to it) and sometimes I go on a "use up my stash" kick, so that is just what I did!  I went through my stash and found all these Making Memories brads that I added to the page!  I forgot I had them!  If you want to jump in on some of these use up your scrap crap challenges, feel free!!
One of my favorite files I made for Design Studio with George was the graph paper, I use it time and again.  You can get that download here... graph paper download
I used the Chomas Creations embossing kit with Ten Second Studios metal sheets for this page.  After I embossed the page, I used a black StayzOn to rub ink over the top of the raised images.
Once again for some quick journaling I grabbed some of the journaling circles I made with the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder.  You can see the tutorial for that here... journaling circles
I used Plantin for the title which was welded in Design Studio.
Here is the completed layout with my daughter and her "little" brother hehe!  The gears are Tim Holtz, the brads are Making Memories, and the paper is Basic Grey.

I think that for whatever reason, the oldest tends to be the smallest! It was that way with my "big" sister and I, my hubby's little brother and sisters are taller than him and my 10 yo DS towers over my very petite 12 yo DD! TFS!!!
