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!
