It was a perfect match for one of my favourite lines from Fancy Pants Designs, Park Bench! Here's a double page layout (?!? I know, right?? Another double pager!!) that I created at CropFest a few weekends ago:
Supply List: Core’dinations and Bazzill cardstock; Fancy Pants corrugated and patterned paper, stickers, felt flowers, chipboard, buttons and pin; Martha Stewart Crafts border punch; Sizzix BigKick; Cheery Lynn Designs die; Maya Road trinket pin; The Twinery twine; Basic Grey letter stickers; Papermate Flair pen; Prima paper flower.

Journaling reads: You were both so affectionate to each other when you were younger. Nowadays, during the bickering and grumbling, I long for these younger days!

One of the girls at CropFest commented about how I always seemed to "rock" the clusters on my layouts - and to be truthful, I just keep moving stuff around until it looks right! And sometimes, even then, I don't know when to stop... LOL!
A couple of the flowers in the pack didn't jive with the paper as much as I'd like - I have a problem with needing everything matchy-matchy - so I ripped them apart and included some paper flowers that I had in my stash:
