Mama’s Boy

There’s a story behind this photo, but I used it because I love it. And as far as the history…err scrapbooks…remember that’s all this photo will be.

(No need to remember that I was warming him up because he had the chills and then proceeded to be sick as soon as we had finished with our photo shoot. Not many kids could smile when they were coming down with the stomach bug! Haha!)

And as far as the history...err scrapbooks...remember that's all this photo will be. #scrapbooking #layoutDesign Inspiration: Cari Orellana’s class Bold Backgrounds at Big Picture Classes inspired me to try creating a layout with a text background. I was excited to finally use this purple paper!
  • Color Inspiration: Plenty of purple in this layout! With a bit of red and grey to accent. Swoon!

To add a bit more bling to the layout I used a few purple brads. These have been in my stash for forever! So glad to be using them up! The date was already stamped on the paper, but it was close to the date of the photo so I just left it.

I had some letter stickers that were very similar to the font on the paper. So I added a bit to the “today” that was already on the paper. The red letters didn’t cover the purple and white very well so I put them on white paper and trimmed around the words. That way they popped a bit off the page.

This sweet boy loves his Mama. And his Mama adores him!

Some Jr Camp Fun

Last summer my youngest went to a week long camp called Jr Camp for the first time. Prior to that his Dad had gone with him and it was only two nights. I’m not sure if you can tell by the photos, but I’m pretty sure he had fun!

I wasn’t at camp, but thankfully they take lots of photos during the week and upload them to a Shutterfly album after the event. So I’m still able to scrapbook camp even when I’m not there. Love that!

To create the photo block I went with my old standby, 4×6 photo templates. I love pairing one full 4×6 photo with a 4×6 collage. I use this process to create my photo templates.

I was inspired by these acetate squares I got on sale awhile ago. I loved the colors and thought the words went well with the theme of the layout. I used them to build out a nice grid design. And since I’ve got enamel dots coming out of my ears, I was easily able to find matching dots for each square. It was an easy way to cover up the little bit of adhesive I used to stick the squares down.

I’m all about simple handwritten journaling. Just a few words to document my perspective on his week away.

I love documenting these bits and pieces of my children’s lives!
