A Labor of Love

I am working away on Mason's scrapbook but tonight I just got this one page done.  I spent 3 or 4 hours on it but it was a labor of love.  I was scrapping some of my favorite pictures of him.  Jen loved this little out fit and he wore it a lot.  I would call him Racky Racoon when he would wear it and the little shirt says on it, "It wasn't me."  He looks cute as can be in it.  I am sure you will agree!  I am betting that Jen will frame this one and put it in his room, as the colors match his room so well, and it will also be nice to have it out on display for his party.

Last week, I downloaded a whole bunch of scrapbook sketches and this is the sketch that I chose to follow for this layout.  Isn't this picture just a stitch where it looks like he is winking?!?!?  LOL  Absolutely adorable and so perfect with that shirt!

I used a pink scalloped circle of  SU paper as a template to draw my scalloped circle and then I cut it out.  I traced a dinner plate to make the celery circle.  The bracket was cut out with the Cricut cartridge Plantin' School book.  I used a Chocolate Chip marker to do the hand stitching.  The letters were cut out with the Big Shot and the Naturally Serif die.  One of my favorites.  They are a nice small size and I reach for that die a lot!

The center circle was punched with the 1 3/4" Circle punch, and the heart was punched out using the Heart to heart punch.

I am so very thankful to have air conditioning.  This heat is something else!  I plan on holing up in the Stamping Cave all week until the flea market next Saturday.  I do have a few errands to run, and I will venture out to the mail box as I have a few goodies arriving in the mail this week, but other than that....home is where I plan to be!  :-D

I plan on putting in a stamping order, and a Tastefully Simple order, so if you need some things, send me an email or give me a buzz! 

Lots of fun things in the new catalog!  And wait till you see the Holiday are going to love it!!!

Stay cool!  Elaine
