20 Questions

T.G.I.F! Everyone!

I don't have any plans for the weekend and I love it! When I was younger that would have been awful! I would have thought the world was passing me by if I didn't have plans or if I stayed home! Now a weekend at home sounds perfect! I'll read, spend some time with my boys, do some cooking and take a cat nap with my big lazy cat! Sounds heavenly!

Today I have a scrapbook page to share with you! Recently our son Christopher has taken to his world map placemat. He loves to ask what the biggest city of this country is and what's the capital of that country! Every night at dinner and each morning at breakfast it's time for 20 questions! ;) The funny thing is...my husband can answer almost all his questions! I just don't have that kind of brain capacity! ;)


So here's our cat Java checking out the page! I think he likes the jute on that tag! Funny how he has to get into the action when the camera comes out! His lazy brother is nearby, in the middle of a nap, and couldn't be bothered!


For this page I thought the map patterned paper from October Afternoonwould work perfectly! Also the numbers pattern from Jillibean Soupand the dark brown numbered paper from Collage Press. Whenever I can't find any accents in my stash that will work for my page I'll make my own like these stars.


These stars were created with my old Sizzix die cutter. I made some with plain old Kraft stock and then some were made with the map paper. I even hand stitched some.


I love tags and used two for my title and journaling. As you can see, I have my signature hand stitching everywhere! Another thing I like to do is use my border punches.

Oh, I don't want to forget to announce the winner for the card I posted yesterday! Amy from Scrapping my Soul won! Congratulations Amy!

I wish you all a terrific weekend! I may or may not post over the next two days. Depends on how lazy I get! ;) Have a good one! :) Kathy

So many details...you might not be able to answer all of your sons questions...but you have lots of creative ideas to keep track of. To answer your question...we don't have an etsy site...you just call Hutch Studio and
chris will tell you the scoop. Have a relaxing weekend and take that cat nap!
