A couple of old Fogies

This is so adorable and lots of fun.

 So for 100 days at school, the school decided that
the kidlets should come to school
as old fogies - old people
or really really old people.
Like 100 years old.
 And aren't they a hoot.
Old school.

And from what I understand, the grandkidlets
were total hams about it.
Look the way they are leaning on the canes.
I only hope to look that good at 100.
Echo Park paper that reminded me of my gram's wallpaper
and of course and old telephone from My
Mind's Eye helps set the tone.

Love the mustache.

4x4 Album Perfect size to be gifted

I happened to be shopping in Hobby Lobby
just looking.....actually for some
Key West stuff (which there are none).
And in their sales bin was this 4x4 Becky Higgins
project life album for $2.15 so
on a whim I picked it up.
Mainly because I couldn't decide what the gift
album I wanted to make for my friends
who accompanied us to Key West.
I seriously LOVE this size and I'm going to pick up more.
I can so see this on one of my RV trips.
 It had 2 different page protectors - a regular 4x4
and protectors that have 4 2x2 inserts.
 And how fun are they.....
 I did intersperse them throughout instead of
leaving them all lumped together as the "same same."
 I thought I took a lot of photos and in hindsight
alas, I did not.
So some of the photos are 2x2 and 4x4.
And that's okay too.
 A journaling spot.

I used some Basic Grey stickers and QK dies, EK Success words.
The last one is a Technique Tuesday stamp
and love putting them on projects I gift.

Instead of sending Valentine cards

I made these monkeys, one of each sex, on a straw for all the grands 
instead of a card. 10 of them in all.
They were a lot of fun to make and as an
extra goodie, I wrapped $1 bill around the straw and
used a piece of twine to hold it on.
I'm told they were a big hit.

So the girl monkey has eyelashes and earrings.
Gold earrings. LOL!!!

Same photos - different pages

I do little 8x8 pages for the family and I also
make pages for me....
Since I used the same photos it made sense
to post the pages in the same blog post.

I made an 8.5x11 for me of the granddaughter snowboarding
using a series of photos sent to me.
Using the Tim Holtz  coffee splatter stencil about
the page using white ink - I was disappointed when the ink
dried - as it was going on, and I layered it quite a few times
it looked like "snow." As it dried, however, it looks
like a spill. Used up an acetate ticket.
 Tucked some  QK snowflakes around
along with some bling.

 Studio calico paper going on with some red things glued about too.

So below since the entire family went snowboarding
I did a 8.5x11 pocket page for them
using the same sequence of photos along with 
the others.s
Used some of the Pink Fresh Christmas embellishments
scattering them about, some punched arrows
and Studio Calico stamp.

Tomorrow we're headed to the keys for a few days
of camping. Internet will be dicey but we're gonna have some fun!

Love this pink washed paper

from Studio Calico - I saved it for last 
mostly because I wasn't sure what to do with it.
And it required nothing at all but to add these
 My Mind's Eye
and Fancy Pants die cut embellies.
 Got some layers going on at the top too.
 And then shazam - a photo from the wayback box
that's perfect - my brother's daughter Lisa with her Memaw.
(Her dress is pink).
Seriously love how this turned out.
This is in 1981 and she's all grown up with kidlets
of her own now.
