Random Stamping

Random Stamped paper using Connections stamp and Cranberry and New England Ivy inks

I had pictures of the kids at Krispy Kreme and could find a paper to work with them.  The logo is in red and green and I didn't want the page to look Christmassy so I made my own patterned paper!

I have added the title on the right since I took the picture.  I was really happy with the way it turned out!

The funny story behind the pictures is that we were still trying to potty train one of our boys and the reward for the day was doughnuts but only for those who stayed dry!  We were trying reverse pyschology since nothing else was working!  You will notice one kid doesn't have a doughnut...because he didn't stay dry, oh and didn't seem to mind missing out either!  Go figure!  The good news is he is potty trained now and mommy doesn't have any more diapers after 6 1/2 years!

Out of my comfort zone!

I follow several scrapbooking challenges and one recently said pull out a scrapbooking magazine and do a layout in there.  Currently, I have NO scrapbook subscriptions so I thought I should buy one and see what is in there!

I got the Creating Keepsakes magazine and for the most part felt like it was mostly ads but I loved the page of layouts!  It was just sketches but somewhere in the magazine was an example of each layout.

SO  this is the layout I picked to try.  It was way out of my norm to be cutting out clouds and popdotting them and freehand cutting the bottom border, etc.  I LOVE the layout though and was really proud of my adventure out of my comfort zone!

I used You Rock for the green paper and orange border and Splendor for the cloud paper!  The font is the Hannah Montana cricut cartridge!
