MCT ~ Scrapping the Little Things

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I know we did and enjoyed family time together. Just seems lately there isn't enough time for much of that. I know I have been MIA on all of your blogs and I do apologize. With our in house baseball team in the championships ( my sons team won) tournament baseball and the end of school, I have been a mad woman running around. Plus the hubs is super busy this time of year with work, so I have been a tad crazy. Hopefully soon I can get back into the rhythm of some normalcy??? HA!
Any way today is Scrapping the Little Things over at My Creative Time with Emma and the design team. We try our best to keep our scrap books in sight so we aren't decades behind! YIKES ~ I will be this Fall when my son turns 10!
Today I thought I would scrap my sons 4th grade field trip. They went to the Aviary. I wasn't able to attend this year but lucky for me 2 of my friends went and captured this day for me! My son got pooped on by a bird! When I started getting tons of texts, I started to worry but they were just sharing with me the pictures of him and what had happened. They gave him this pin, I guess all guests receive one if this happens while they are there visiting. Now you are probably wondering why the lottery tickets. Well supposedly if you get pooped on by a bird it's good luck. So as soon as Ryan came home from school that day we went and played the lottery! We ended up winning $6! Now I didn't find that out until I did this layout. I didn't want to attach the tickets until I had them checked. If I go missing, I won big time, since I used the $6 winnings to play more and I am on some island sipping some fruity drink and soaking up the sun! Ha!
I am only going to talk about a few of the My Creative Time products I used but will list everything below. Since Emma just released the set, Already Missing You, and it had a flamingo ~ hello aviary, how could I not use it! Then for the splat of poop, I pulled out the Family is Everything set, how perfect is that?? I wanted to highlight the poop by using the Stitched Mini Frame & Arrow Dies. The grids where I wrote and misspelt "supposedly" (smh) is from Get Schooled. Super simple and nothing to fancy to capture this day!

Materials Used:
Tweet Me ~ bird splat poop
Get Schooled ~ grid lines
Paper ~ PTI and DCWV
Ink ~ Memento, Tim Holtz, Su and VersaMark
white embossing powder
Copic markers

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the design team has created.

  3. Great job on the layout! I would not have notice the spelling and might have tried to spell it the same. Love the splatter funny and clever to think I have a stamp for that! Luckily he didn't get it too bad or on the head. I like how you highlighted the spot with the smaller frame...super idea.
