Birthday Boy

I'm really trying to be better at my blog posts.  For some reason, I always seem to forget to come post them here.  Today I'm up over at the 3SB blog sharing another layout I created using my July Add-On Kit. It features the American Crafts #Summer line which is full of fun bright papers.  Since the colors are such cheerful & happy I thought they'd be fun for this photo of my son on his birthday last year.  He chose to go to Red Robin for lunch and there was a whole girl's athletic team there who insisted on singing to him.  Carsen doesn't like to be sung to and he was quite embarrassed, hence the #embarrassed on my layout.
I loved this pre-designed background with the journaling block right on it.  I layered up several of the papers, stitched a few on, added the thickers from the kit and a few of the stickers from the DIY Simple Stories.  Since the top was a bit heavy I anchored it with the strip of dots from the bottom of one of the papers.  The only thing not in the kit on this layout was the little white alpha stickers.  Otherwise it's all in the kit!  

When I sat down to create this I was inspired by one of Laura Whitaker's sketches, as always.  Love her style!  Isn't it great?!  I might have to use it again rotated.  Love it!

That's it for today.  I keep hoping life will allow me to scrap more than just DT stuff but for now, I'm grateful I can find time for my DT stuff so maybe soon I'll have more time.  Hope you're having a great summer!
