Yin and Yang - CSI challenge 154

Hello scrappy friends, I haven’t posted for ages.  I was sick before Christmas and since then have been in Thailand for a very special family celebration.  Our youngest Son and his lovely partner were married in Thailand.  It was a wonderful family time and we are so happy for them both.

So, on with the challenge 154 for CSI.  The colours could be used for Christmas layouts, but I’ve used them for a boy’s page.  I hope you will join in and use all five colours.
To see all the major sponsors and prizes to be won.

I used some very old patterned paper.  
The striped one is by Daisy D and the polka dot is so old, 
I’m not sure of it’s origin.
The envelope is by Maja
The chipboard is from Scrapmatts
The wooden people are by Studio Calico
Polka dots
Alphabet as a design element
Globe - top left
Textured paper - Bazzil cardstock
Metal - on envelope and world embellie

Use a mix of letters/fonts for journalling.

The journalling is inside the envelope
You two little boys are so different and yet play together amicably (for the most part).   It’s almost as though the gifts and talents one has, encourages the other to try and succeed in that area too.  You learn from the one another's mistakes and avoid certain things which have caused a problem for your brother.  It’s fascinating to observe.  I hope when you begin ELC this year that the teacher will treat you as individuals and not as a set of twins with the same brain and learning abilities.  Recently, at the shops, a woman asked if you were twins and when I said “Yes”, one of you objected vociferously, saying “No, I’m not a twin!”   “He might be; but I’m NOT - I’m just a Boy!”
