I'm gonna try to make this a quickie!! My oldest son Matt is back to class for the summer and these early mornings are killing me! I was made to be a night owl, not a morning person!!!!
Today is my my son Steven's birthday!!! He is 15..........how did that happen???? All my babies are growing up!!! He and I had a mother/son day today :) I took him shopping for some new clothes and then drug him thrifting with me....LOL. And what a LOVELY day for thrifting it was!!! I found a honey pot of 5x7 photo frames for a quarter each!! I bought several.......I don't even know how many......I thought they would be awesome for small scrappy projects and altering. And I FINALLY found a tray to alter!!!! I am super excited about that.....1 buck!! Right now it has airbrushed butterflies on the front....and not the beautiful kind of airbrushing, more like someone was just learning :) But with some paint, photos, and doo dads......I;m getting giddy just thinking about it!!!!
I got a few things for the boys too.......a new baseball, tons of baseball cards that they originally wanted $5 a baggie for.......they dropped them to a more reasonable quarter a baggie and I bought them all.....lol. Some books for Jesse at a quarter each......fun day!!! I can't wait until yard sale season kicks into high gear around here!!
As excited as I am about today's finds, I am just as excited to share a page with you that I created for Child's Play's latest challenge.......Where The Wild Things Are!!! OMGosh what fun!!! And I love how it turned out!!!
I had this sketch saved for a while.........and finally I get a chance to use it!!!
I wanna say this is from Pagemaps......but don't quote me! It was a challenge at A Cherry On Top a month or so back that I didn't get around to. And over the weekend I found some paper by Momenta at Big Lots!!!! EEEEEEEKKkKKKK!!!! It has been forever since I found anything good at my Big Lots!!! And the colors just scream BOY!!! And it was the only packet...so I snagged it right up!
As soon as I saw this challenge posted I knew I would play along and I knew what photos I would use!!
The colors are actually a lot brighter in person. They look kinda washed out on my screen.....thanks to my crappy photographer I guess!
Jesse is such a ham and so expressive.....I love the faces he makes! And I actually found the Feral Kid photo online.....lol. I used the Momenta paper, a Jillibean Soup journaling spot that I layered some DCWV chipboard bits on, title letters from Pebbles, journaling letters from My Little Shoebox, anfd I am clueless about the arrow rub on. I just thought one of my kids would be perfect for a "Wild Thing:" page.....lol.
Some closeups....this photo cracks me up!
If you haven't played along with Childs Play please check them out.......SUPER fun challenges!!!! And they have a DT call going on right now too!!! Why not give it go???
I'll be back tomorrow with a card to share (gasp!!)
Y'all have a great night and thanks so much for dropping by!!
