I scrapbooked. Can you believe it?! :) The need to scrapbook has been overwhelming lately and I took advantage of some spare time. Oh, it felt so good! (Biased mommy alert!-->) And with my handsome little man as the subject, well, you can’t go wrong.
To start of with---I used the new Grand Nestabilities die templates from Spellbinders on this layout!! I used LF-127 Grand Scalloped Squares and LF-126 Grand Squares to make a frame from patterned paper. Needing to add a little something, I cut the frame and put part in the upper left and a smaller part in the lower right. If you want to learn how to make a frame using Nestabilities, you can see a video tutorial HERE. The Grand Nestabilities are wonderful! They pick up where the large sets of standard Nestabilities leave off. Love. Love. Love!
Then I used the newest papers from Bella Bvld, called, Midterm. I fell in love with them at CHA. So bright and funky! The banners are pre-made and on the back of Pep Rally. Buy two of this one, because you will want to use both sides! :)
Because the background seemed pretty plain, I stamped the handwriting line from Mint Motif’s School Basics stamp set. Using watermark ink, it added just right touch.
And the place this layout started, the post it notes. :) I die cut the yellow legal pad patterned paper with a Spellbinders Classic Square Large (die #3). The “tape” used to attach them to the layout was pieces of extra letter stickers I tore with my hands.
As for the journaling on this note, we told him he needed to wear a smile, bring his special school bag, he got to wear his brand new Spiderman shoes (cannot express how big of a deal this was, they light up! :)), and the first day of school was red day. Oh my goodness, when did he get so big?
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! thanks for stopping by!
