Sweet Boy


I'm writing this post on Sunday morning as we're packing up and getting ready to head out for the beach. We'll be there just a few days, unwinding and relaxing and eating fresh hot donuts before we get back into school mode. Anyway, I thought I'd prepare a couple posts to load when we're gone.

I have a really fun scrapbook page share of our sweet lovable boy Latte.

This photo was taken by Patty Kumfer during our recent family photo shoot. I'm so happy that I had the opportunity to grab our sweetie for a couple photos...we love him and his brother Java so much...they really make our house and home and complete our family!

Latte is such a big fluffy baby with the most gorgeous green eyes!

For this page it looks like I used a whole bunch of patterned papers, but I only used one that was made up of strips. This is an older paper from My Mind's Eye, one from their Quite Contrary collection.

Would you believe this is the first time I've used one of those sparkly spray mists? I think I might be a little resistant to change or trying something that could get a bit messy! ;) Anyway, I used the Silhouette to cut out my title letters and used a little double stick tape under each letter to adhere it to my page before spraying it. Then I removed the letters and stitched around them.

I had just a few little pieces of this of patterned paper left to make some embellishments that I punched out and then stitched around.

I really enjoyed using the Glimmer Mist, even though it curls up the paper quite a bit. But then I realized that made for great texture!

Hope you enjoyed my page share! I also hope to peruse some blogs while I'm sitting pool or beach side so can't wait to see what you've been doing! :) Kathy

Look at you busting out the spray mists! You go girl! Really love how you masked your title letters and then stitched. They really pop out against the background. Awesome photo of you and Latte, and love all those paper strips.
Hope you are enjoying every single minute at the beach. You missed a whopper of a storm here last night. Took out the satellite, the electricity, and then started my fire alarm beeping until midnight. Tried 4 different batteries and I never could get it to stop. Finally ripped it out of the ceiling. I bet you're having more fun than that. ;) At least I hope so!
