Flashback Friday-Another Simple Page

Hello and welcome to my little ol' spot in Blogland!  I have another really basic scrapbook page to share today and quite a funny little story to go along with it!  If you saw Wednesday's post, this paper is from the very same pack and again, I liked the pattern so well, I didn't want to cover it up!

I promised a funny little anecdote, so here we go...

Every year, my Mom, both of my sisters, my two girls, and I go to a local arts and crafts festival that is held in a nearby town.  There are several buildings around the town that house the various booths and we visit all of them!! We always have a wonderful time, and while for the most part we stay together, we often drift to different areas based on our own personal tastes and interests.  When we finish with a building, we always show off our purchases before moving on to the next building.  I had bought the cutest bracelet at one of the booths.  It's the kind that has some magnetic beads, but I bought it more for the cosmetic beauty than the health benefits.  As I pulled my bracelet from my bag, my oldest sister started laughing and then produced her exact duplicate bracelet that she purchased.  We could not believe that out of all of the bracelets in that booth that we chose the same design.  As soon as my middle sister heard our laughter, she had to come over and see what was so funny.  So we showed her our bracelets.  Her mouth dropped open and she muttered "UhUh...this is too weird..." and pulled out her MATCHING bracelet!  All three of us had bought the EXACT SAME BRACELET!  Mom just smiled and commented that it just goes to show how similar we are.  I like to think that it must be a sister thing...connected even when we're apart...

I hope you enjoyed my story and my super easy page!  Have a fabulous weekend and happy crafting!
