Mr. Campy

Scrapping everyday Miracles is a lovely blog.  The main challenge over there this month is to create a layout with your favorite season of the year.  It comes with a fabulous twist to use 3 or more leaves on your page.

My favorite season is fall.  I love the crisp, fresh, clean air.  I love the cool breeze in the evening and the leaves on the ground.  My most favorite part is the changing colors of the leaves.  I love the golds, yellows, and especially the reds.  I love red leaves.  I choose a photo of my dear Blake, taken in front of a tree, filled with those precious red leaves, right in our back yard, this last fall.

I used the Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy papers. FINALLY!!!  I've had them forever. Seriously, 2008 I would guess.   Loved them in the store and got home nothing worked.  The plaid was really throwing me off and the fast that I never go camping . Back then I had to use the paper theme as it was intended.... yeah not anymore.  But the great shades of red, yellow, green and golds were perfect for fall photos.

Could this cute line from CC have started the tree/ wood phase of products?  I don't know, but I do know I love this print.

Twisted Tuesday with Captain underpants.

Hello Crafty friends!!!!!!

I can't believe August is gone. Summer has packed his bags and ran away for the year. We are on the second week in September, and school has been in for over a month now.  I love the schedule this brings to the month, yet I don't like B being away all day. I miss him.  He is doing great in school this year!!! I feel he was placed with a wonderful teacher that truly cares.  Thus far, 100% on all 4 spelling test, which I am very proud of.

Twisted Tuesday  has their new challenge up.You need to use primary colors, and some buttons on your project. Easy peasy right, as my son would say. I used red and blue with a touch of yellow, and placed 4 blue buttons in the corner to act as tacks.   Head over there and join in on the fun. You have until this Sunday to link.

Here is my creation for them.  This is one of those photos I've had for while and needed to get scrapped before I forget the little details now that b#2 is ready to potty train. I used more papers from my dwindling stash. Yay me!!!  I did have a moment of weakness and a $10 gift card that I won from Paper Secrets, so I  purchased the Into the woods collection by Lawn Fawn, my first stuff from them and the Echo Park Boys mini collection. ;) ;)

Be sure to say hello so I can come back and read your blog if I don't already do so. Im looking for some new folks for inspiration.
