summer lov'n time.

when I saw this shirt in Walmart, I HOPED that one of my boys would want it (they were both with me) one chose the reeses peanut butter cup but my youngest's favorite color is orange--he LOVED this shirt.  I knew that I would somehow have to figure out how to get a picture of him and scrap it...at this particular moment he did NOT want to smile for me at all!  So this is the one and ONLY shot where he is smiling....I used the new True Stories kit and the add on:

I have a few details about this page that turned out to be AWESOME creative accidents! :)  I cut the title twice, once in yellow and then in the orange color-I wasn't sure which to use.  I put the yellow down, then put the orange to try and imagine what it would look like.  Then I really looked at it and liked the layered affect!  You can see a little closer below.  The cardstock is actually some coredinations that I have had FOREVER (remember I'm using up the stash!) It was more gray than I wanted so I just sanded until I got the affect I wanted excited that it turned out in the pictures!  This page makes me happy--it came together quickly with colors that I know my boy LOVES! :)

some closeups:
 I'm a bit giddy as my kids will begin their new adventures tomorrow for school.   I enjoy hearing their stories when they come home!  Hoping to get some FANTASTIC back to school pictures too! :)
Thanks for the visit today!
