That's My Boy...

I laughed so hard when I received this recent photo from the guys on their way to lunch with Phil's sister and her partner... (as the journaling states) Leave it to Jaden to use this opportunity to let them know  that he probably would have been happier back at home playing on his Xbox with his brother Jared!! hee hee

Many of the papers and sentiments are from October Afternoon's Daily Flash Collection..

2015 - Birthday Card (2)...

I love this Tim Holtz Die... #660037
it's so versatile!!
Along with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.. #37-1604
Simple Stories 6x6 papers.. #SS2896, it all came together quite quickly.
Works for me!! hee hee

2015 - Birthday Card (1)...

You can never have enough Birthday Cards in your stash!! hee hee

I hand cut a rectangle, rounded the bottom corners...pulled out a Tim Holtz die, some punches and an embossing folder for this one...I can see this being more masculine by just using different design papers....

This Old House...

It's really good and challenging, too, to be back scrapbooking...it's such a different craft format than cardmaking!!

Of course this is all made easier by following along the weekly challenges over at CSI
( http://csicolorstoriesinspiration.ning.com/ )
This Layout is based on Case #154...

The Journaling shares the story of the two photos... one in 1956 ( with my best friend in front of her home) the other in 2004.. when I moved back to PEI and was in a position to buy this special house ...
