The little things mean a lot...


Purple-Pumpkin-the-little-things-mean-a-lot-layout

So, the luck with free movie tickets courtesy of my brother continues...[okay, he joined this club for a year and just wanted to milk it for all it was worth...I'm not complaining! *LOL*]


Nephew #1 and #2 were pretty excited about Despicable Me 2...and my sister came too. Now the nephews are terrified of my sister [her maternal instincts hasn't quite kicked in yet...] so when asked who wanted to sit with Aunt E, nephew#2 was quick to raise his hand to say, "Not me!" *LOL*
We loved the movie...it was hilarious! :)


This layout was based on the August sketch challenge at Purple Pumpkin. Come play along for your chance to win some Purple Pumpkin goodies...you don't need to use any Purple Pumpkin products to participate!:)

Funny story.Don't tell me that you were not secretly gloating over the fact that they would rather sit with you.I know I would have.The background is fun.Perfect balance of patterns and embellishment.

So funny that your nephews are afraid of your sister! What's the age difference between you? Do they spend much time with her?
