my boy

Taking photos, especially of kids, can be a bit of a hit and miss adventure. With the advent of digital photography, it makes it so much easier to take a good picture. You can keep shooting and shooting until you get a good shot. Yes, it’s still tricky at times but I love not wasting film.

Last week I was going through some photos I took last November and came across this one of child number four. Love it! I printed it out so that I’d scrap it next.

Lucky me…I picked up the latest Up the Street Scrapbooking kit on Tuesday and the colors worked perfectly. It’s a fairly simple design to keep the focus on the photo.

My Benjamin

Do you see the white mist?! It’s Mr. Huey’s Calico White Color Mist. I saw this on a blog (sorry can’t remember where) and just had to have it. Of course, everywhere I looked it was all sold out. I was so excited to see that Tara has it in stock at Up the Street. It’s beautiful and subtle and I think I have a new product crush. Stay tuned. 😉

How about this lace/rhinestone embellishment for stunning? It’s part of the kit and I’ve saved a piece for another project too. That’s on my to do list for today.


Finally…the banner and the journaling. I’ve gotten over my fear of handwriting on my page. I rarely do anything else now. To create the banner…I saved the one inch strip of kraft cardstock that I cut off before matting the kraft with the red cardstock. Waste not, want not and all that! To make it stand out, it’s stamped with the Happy stamp from the Dictionary stamp set by Hero Arts.

Enjoy the day!
