Toddler Fun

I have been working on a layout today, and I still don't know if I am happy with it.  I love the pictures, but I am just not crazy about something in the layout.  If I knew what it was, I would fix it!! ;)  These are pictures from nearly 20 years ago, and I didn't have the luxury of digital prints back then.  I am just so happy to have these pictures and to have put them to another set of legacy pages!  What you have in this post are simple pages - and that's okay, too!

I based my layout on the Let's Scrap sketch for the week.  Such great sketches at this site! I think this is a fabulous place to find inspiration and sketches - amazing work at Let's Scrap!  I also noticed while I was working on it that it will work for the color challenge for Frosted Designs.


I have used Tinkerin' paper from CTMH.  I purchased this paper knowing that I didn't like it so much, but that it would be great for little boy pages. I buy paper that is suitable for my pictures.  I love that paper I don't necessarily like challenges me and helps me grow.  After nearly two decades of paper crafting, that is important!  I've used the Level 1 kit, so all the stickers are included.  I added some Making Memories Giggle Kids dots, CTMH buttons, and I put glossy accents over the word "fun" to make it pop.


I have got some news that I am busting at the seams to tell you, but I can't just yet!  Look for that annoucement on Sunday!!

Silly girl. Why purchase paper you didn't love? I think it's it really cute. The problem (I think) is the sketch. I love Let's Sketch. But I think the pages are good on their own this time, not together. As a two pager, they just don't flow. Just look at their DT layouts. They don't work. Separate your pages , add something to the top of your second page and it'll be perfect. (Bossy, aren't I?)

I like Denise's advice...and the pages theme could stand on thier own separately too. I rarely do 2 pagers, ... too challenging for me! But I dooo love yours separeted or left together!!! Thanks so much for joining us at Frosted Designs.

I can't believe Denise said that! I was thinking the sketch looked like to different pages put together also...How funny.
I also have some this paper and have only cut it up and used it here and there.
I think your layouts are adorable with Shane.
I hate when people say they have something to share but you have to wait....do you want us to have a gripper???

I love your pages! I love those toddler photos of Shane! That little coupe has been around a while, my brother, 30 had one, and my little kids did too. You did such a fantastic job with the sketch and color challenge at Frosted Desings! Thanks for linking it up this week!
Blessings,
