MCT ~ Scrapping The Little Things


Good morning! Well we all know that Mondays can be a little tough but not over at My Creative Time because it's Scrapping The Little Things. This is when Emma and the design team get to get caught up on out Project Life, Smash books or our layouts! I know I say this all the time but I am so happy Emma has started this because it truly helps me do more pages for Ryan's scrapbook.
So with all that said lets get right to it! Today I chose to scrap my son's first hair cut. I wanted to make this super simple, base my colors off the romper he was wearing and add as little as I could ~ well little to me but probably a great deal to all you CAS pros out there! LOL! I tend to add everything but the kitchen sink to all my projects ~ not sure why??
I will list all the details  below the picture as usual but wanted to say my sweet friend Katie. She gave me the idea of using the stitched circle die from the "Build A Banner Kit" stamp set. Thank You Katie! I can see me using this a great deal more too! The tone on tone circles just add so much to a plain piece of paper. Then my new LOVE ~ Washi tape! EEK ~ no one EVER told me how fun this stuff is!
That is all for me today but head on over to My Creative Time to see what the design team has in store for you all! Sorry for the horrible picture but either the sun was FULL force here or none at all! Let alone this poor page went through the yard a few times from the wind!!!
