Howdy Partner!

     I have been LOVING creating layouts with the new Crate Paper Toy Box line.  It is perfect for scrapping my 3 little dudes (well, I guess not so little dudes is more appropriate). 
     This is a LO of our stop at the Lego Store in Downtown Disney last week.  I started it. . .then got totally distracted by the star themed embellishements I began making.
     Before I knew it, I had 8 different 'stars' created for this LO.  They were so fun & easy to make.  Some are stamped, layered with metal pieces, raised with foam squares, have buttons and/or twine. . .you get the idea.  I only ended up using 3 of them on this LO. . .the others are eagerly awaiting their new home.  :)

     My all -time favorite scrappy 'things' are:  stars, polka pots, anything orange, and secretive/hidden details. . .you know. . .the stuff that means something special to my family and I. . .but others may simply glance over without having it 'click'.  On this LO, I stamped 'March 2011' onto the patterned paper. I also stamped a red circle around the 16-17 on the same paper to remind me of the dates we were there.  There are also several hand-stamped number '2's' just to remind me that these '2' boys were crazy about their find.

     I'm also a big fan of hand-stitching.  I love adding embroidery floss to my LO's.

     Thanks so much for stopping by today!  DH is at work today/night.  I hope to get a lot of my projects photo edited/resized to add to the blog (and family blog).  He's been home studying A LOT lately. . .so my computer time has been limited. . .but. . .if all of his studying pays off it will be sooo worth it.  :)  Feel free to say a little prayer for his success!  :)  Thanks!

love, lisa

Oh Lisa, this is so cute! I love all of the little details you put in this!! I love how you took a Disney photo, but the LO wasn't Disney-fied. You have really inspired me.
