Me and My Brother

There are two wonderful challenges going on....One at lasting Memories which is to scrap a vintage/old type picture....and then the one over at Another freaking Scrappy Challenge,"What is on your greatest challenge? Scrap about one of your greatest current challenges, or a challenge from your past."

When I first saw the vintage/old photo challenge I knew just which picture I wanted to the hunt began.... while I was hunting for the illusive photo I thought....this also fit into the whats you greatest challenge too since the photo is of me and my Bother....see one of the biggest challenge for me is being away from my Family I live in Wisconsin and most of them live in Connecticut ....hmmm that's quite the drive..I guess its not just hard on me is really hard on my brother,you see we have always been really close he even Married my best friend from school, we had our kids around the same time ( his oldest is born on my birthday) the oldest ones are just a month apart....and the youngest ones were close too....I had two girls and he had the two boys.....About six months ago our whole world seemed to change (I wont get into it will make me cry but you can read it here) My family (mostly my brother) begged me /us to move closer so they could be there for us....that just wasn't something we could do....So anyway that's one of my biggest challenge...missing my brother!

 This is one of the only pictures we have as small children and its old and a bit torn at the edges...I scanned it to my computer but didn't alter it in anyway
