hey, mom…

A while back (he says it was two whole years ago…but I think it was last fall), Josh came into my office and handed me these little pieces of paper. He had drawn his name a couple of times, colored it, and cut them out. He asked me if I wanted them for his scrapbook. Of course I did! I love that he WANTS to save things in his memory book! Unfortunately, I am a slacker and it’s taken me a while (longer if you think he’s right about when he gave them to me) to actually add them to a page for his book – but I finally did it!  I found a random photo to put with his drawings and created a page especially for him.


I used the larger of the two drawings right on the photo matte.


And I chose to use a black and white photo because there were so many bright, fun colors going on everywhere else.  I wanted the photo to stand out and not compete with the background.


Of course, I had to add some machine stitching.  I really have a hard time not using it on my projects!


And for the other drawing, I tucked it away into this cute little pocket with a fun journaling card…


This layout was completed exclusively with Doodlebug products – and I shared it on their company blog HERE earlier this month. :)




And you can find lots of additional items from this fun collection HERE or HERE!


  1. Very cute layout love the colors and especially how he drew his name !!!!


  2. I saw this on the Doodlebug blog and loved it, so had to leave you some love! This is probably one of my hands-down favorite Doodlebug collections in awhile. Love the colors, the icons, and especially how well it works with my PL layouts! :) Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. So great that he gave you those drawings to put in the scrapbook.
