A Love Thang.....!

Actually, it's a love my kids thang! LOL! I was playing around with some pictures I had printed out a while back of my 3 kids. I think this picture was taken in 2002 and is one of my all time favorites! I loved how my oldest has her hair, my youngest is so sweet looking and my son, well to me he's just plain handsome!



I used SU real red paper for the solid red, I have no clue where the other paper came from (read that as a confession of a scrapbook paper hoarder!) since I pick up paper anywhere and everywhere! LOL! I used heart brads from Making Memories, the chipboard letter came from Michael's, ribbon is all SU, the button...well I'm a button hoarder too (falls under my embellishment junkie habit! LOL!). The brown circles are something I picked up last night at Michael's. I found my way back to their clearance section and saw these sticker sheets for $1! Now who can resist that?! It's only a dollar right?! Well it's okay until you have about 20+ items, then as my DH says "no longer a good deal"! LOL! Here's the thing about them though, they're not scrapbooking stickers but made to go on some wooden bangles that you could make yourself! I thought - why not?! I don't always go by the "Acid Free" everything way of scrapbooking but go with whatever I want - a little bit! LOL! Ooh and I got the "I Do" sticker from Target on one of my red tag hunting escapades! It was actually a wedding sticker that I got thinking I could use it somehow, well I did! I had to cut it from the sticker since there was three of them on there but it works...so I think anyway!

Well I hope you like it!

Until next time

The flowered paper and scalloped edge are great! I really like how you put this one together.

I totally understand the need to look through the clearance section too!
