It is super fun to scrap photos that are now (yikes) ten years old.  They are good memories that help when parenting a teen gets tough!

 The left side is inspired by the sketch challenge over at Scrap Your Stash.  The sketch is altered for 4 photos on the right side.

  • I started with light blue cardstock as a base and added a colorful music patterned paper I have in my stash for who knows how long?  There was no identifying printing on the paper to even know who made it, but it was perfect for this layout!
  • I has some great scraps from Bo Bunny Toy Box, Circles (which I think count as polka dots) and Cheerful.  The small 4 represents how old my son was in the photos, and is from the B side.
  • The yellow strips is also a B side pattern as is the two color small strips.  I think they all coordinate together well.
  • To add both washi tape an follow the idea of the sketch I added lime green washi by Paper Studio.  It did take a few minutes to miter the corners.  
  • The tag was cut with Paper Studio's Tag punch.  A small remnant of ribbon from my stash tops the tag.
  • The Musical die cuts are from the Silhouette store.
  • David Walker Creative Imaginations letter stickers create the two titles. 
  • Journaling was completed with a Zig Writer in Splash.  
 Thanks so much for stopping by!  It is therapeutic to share my crafting with the blogsphere!
