{who will you be}

Just sharing another layout that I created using the May kit from Scrapbook Circle! In order to get the MOST out of the kit, I was careful about trying to keep the 12x12 papers as whole as when I wanted to use a piece of the Fancy Pants Delight Spice, I cut the piece from the middle of the paper which allowed me to use the paper later as a base for today's layout! Way to think ahead, huh???

The inspiration for this layout came from the picture I youngest, Joel, was taking a break from mowing and he appeared to just be "thinking" on that old tree stump. Well, that made me start to thinking & wondering...wondering about who he would eventually become? what he would do with his life? I realize that this may seem a bit DEEP, but he is 14 and in just 4 short years he will be heading out into this CRAZY he just graduated from junior high, so mom has been a bit emotional lately :0)

My DH even commented on this layout, saying "Jeez, you are gonna make me cry..." well, I guess that is what I was going for!

So here's: WHO WILL YOU BE

This layout went together so I didn't even have to try! I used bits & pieces of pp from the kit and even the patterned strip at the bottom of the Pebbles Inc that is so there is no waste! Love that!

My favorite part of this layout, other than the photo? That adorable Sassafrass Perchers Feltie! & the scallop circle behind him? Well, that is the packaging from Sassafrass...I just ran it thru my Cuttlebug! Love to re-cycle!!!

Here's what I used from the May kit from Scrapbook Circle:

PP-Fancy Pants Delight Spice, Cards & Strips

PP-American Crafts Craft Fair

Pebbles Inc Patchwork

Rubons-Fancy Pants Delight

Sassafrass Perchers Felties

& from my stash: Label Buddy, date stamp & Stampin' Up ink, sand paper & machine stitching

Well, that's it for now...thanks for stopping by! Take care!
