Are you tired of the same old, same old every week? How about joining in on a fun little mid-week crop to boost your spirits and perk up your scrapping? Scrapperie is having a Wild & Wacky Wednesday Crop this Wednesday, October 29th from 12:01 am until late into the night! And don't worry about having to have crop projects in right away- they won't be due until 11:59pm on Sunday, November 2nd! This way, you can fully enjoy the games and activities we have scheduled without having to rush to finish all the challenges we have planned! Prizes range anywhere from a Scrapperie gift certificate, to one of many RAKs. You could even win an October kit! So, come relax and enjoy a little mid-week scrappy getaway with the Wild & Wacky Wednesday Crop at Scrapperie- you'll be glad you did!
You've always been my cute little boy but now you are growing into a handsome young man right before my eyes.
I used borders from the rub-on sheet on the mats for the two larger photos. I created the circle embellies for "second grade" and "kindergarten" on the computer, and then added the FP rub ons in the centers.

This is my page for my Week 2 Challenge for Allyscraps Next Top Scrapbooker - Sketch Rewind! Here is the challenge with all the details - and the contest goes on all month long, so there is still time to get in on it! I used my most recent sketch from September 26, since it's based on one of Kary's AWESOME pages and I hadn't actually done a page from it myself! I rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the right.
This My Mind's Eye Brilliant might be just about my favorite new paper! Every pattern in the collection is GORGEOUS, and SO perfect for boy pages but could easily be used for girls as well!
When we chose the name Tyler, we didn’t expect him to go by a nickname. He is always simply “Tyler” to us. His teachers and his classmates call him Tyler. His aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends call him Tyler. There is only one exception to the all-Tyler-all-the-time rule. To Ryan, on a fairly regular basis, he is simply: Ty. It is something that came about naturally. It always brings a smile to my face, because I know that it is part of their special connection. It is something unique, and it is just between them.

Our Allyscraps Next Top Scrapbooker month-long contest is already in full swing! There's still plenty of time to get in on it, since all challenges are due by October 28.
This is my page for Kary's Bling it On A.N.T.S. challenge! I'm not usually a bling and glitter scrapper, but I really liked how this turned out! Love these double-sided papers in the Cosmo Cricket "Haunted" collection.
I painted the Stickles on the chipboard letters and also on the brads. I LOVE the effect! Here's a close-up:
