A little scrappin' going on here!

I was able to sit down last night and scrap. Lots has been going on at our household and I needed a little time to escape the insanity! Nothing takes me to that awesome place better than scrapbooking. I have had this photo of B sitting on my desk for ages. Even prior to the move. It sat in the same spot. I knew what I wanted to do with it just wasn't sure of the design. I started with the pic in the middle and then I grabbed that new Notations paper, and away I went. As my children get older there are so many things they say and do at these ages I NEVER want to forget. I used this page to journal the little details about B at the age of 5. From his favorite movies, to little milestones he has hurdled as a 5 year old, ie.. no more training wheels. The chipboard is actually pretty naked except for the doodles stamped directly onto them. I sponged lightly around them to make them pop a little more. I loved that the Notations paper had the numbers in many of the patterns which made this layout really come together. I wanted to repeat the number 5 which would give the layout a better balance in using the good ole rule of threes. Another piece of magic on this page was using the black cardstock. I believe it really made it pop on this paper. I used my favorite alphabet Big Deal. I love this alphabet because it is so universal and there are so many ways you can use it. This is what I call a "more bang for your buck" set. Lastly, who couldn't resist that adorable sweaty face??? Ahhh...

Happy Thursday!
