Busted 12x12 Scrapbook Pages

This was a very fun page. I found the paper first and was planning on doing it on my son Calvin, how he has a messy room but walks out looking like James Bond. The night I started working on them.. something crazy went down in his room.

You can see from the pictures that his room looked like a bomb went off in it. So I went and got the camera and took the pictures of his room and of him being hand cuffed with his toy hand cuffs... really it turned out to be real funny; even the boys were laughing.

Picture of the pages together, just click on Photo to see enlarged.

Then I made up 4 more sets for my friends. They loved them.. what I really can't wait to see is the stories on their pages. Plus there is one more for my son Levi; I have not decided what to put on it yet... so that will be coming up when it is done.

The Recipe

Stamp Sets:
Well-Worn Alphabet
Paper Colors:
Chocolate chip, Black, Riding hood red,
Ink Colors:
Riding hood red,
Riding hood red striped ribbon, Red Crystal brad,
Stapler, Jumbo Chocolate brad, Cutter tool, Sponge dauber,
Creative imaginations paper "who me".

The other chocolate ribbon I got at various scrapbook stores,
and the cute little Chocolate square paper clips I found
them in Walmart in the office suppply aisle.

Thanks for looking my friends!!

You Make Me Happy

Picture of my My Mother-inlaw and her brother in 1929.

I just wanted to share this page, I did not make this one my friend Terry did. She is on my list for best blogs if you want to see more of her work. With the colors on this page I thought that this old photo was perfect. Just look how cute the clothes that they have on are, and the shoes... I wish I had them in my collection.. (yeah I do collect baby shoes) lol
