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. :)

  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!
