At Play

My hubby graduated from Army Warrant Officer Candidate School on 23 May - so I kind of took a break from scrapping for a couple weeks. Yesterday (Sat, 9 June) was SCRAP Day here at my house where the ladies come over & work on whatever they have going & we share, have a sack lunch (or leftovers- whichever) and really get the creative juices flowing. So- here's what I worked on and got finished (well- the 2nd page wasn't done until 10pm last night, but I was working on it all afternoon & evening):

This is my DS in August 1991 - he was such a happy baby- loved the camera (still does). I used CTMH Lagoon bg card stock & ink & CTMH stamp sets Boys at Play & Legend. I originally was doing this for's May's Monochrome Teal challenge, but could not finalize this side of the 2 page LO - so I finally was able to lay it out and finish it yesterday with stitching and canting the 2 pics and adding some tone on tone stamping. The center pic is boardered using a rope punch by ek.
This is the right to the page- I used all scraps except for the bg CTMH Lagoon cardstock- I then stamped using CTMH Stitched Together and wet embossed w/olive embossing powder the star, heart & circle. Next I stamped Play & august using CTMH August & September Word Puzzles. Lastly I got on the computer and put together some adjectives and facts using different fonts & printed on white card stock- then cut into strips and trimmed the ends each in a different way to really add some character. Oh- I punched the rope along the brown to tie in with the frame on the left page. 
Here's both pages together- sorry the color is so off- just couldn't get it to brighten up.

Thanks for stopping by & please leave me a note to let me know you were here :) Have a blessed day.
