Lucky me, more scrapping time!

Good afternoon! I had another chance to sneak into the craft room today…little man doesn’t feel well. He is complaining of an upset tummy, and although he hasn’t gotten sick or anything like that, he just isn’t himself so I know something is up.

Rather than sit around and do nothing (and of course after playing around with Pintrest and refreshing my blog’s look…do you like?) I got up into the craft room and worked on Rileigh’s album a little more. I’m only 4 years behind *gasp* haha

I saved this post card that Rileigh received from her preschool teacher during the summer before kindergarten started up, and I recall the look of delight on her face when I told her she had mail. She could read very well before even entering preschool, so she was abe to read the note from her teacher. It’s exciting to get mail!

I began by misting the background page with my homemade glimmer mist, a combo of Eco Crafts raspberry acrylic paint, Pearl Ex powder, and water. I layered some BG Euphoria paper and added the postcard over it. I thought the colors of this paper line matched the post card quite nicely, don’t you think? (I blurred out the address even though we don’t live there anymore, you just never know…)

A strip of BG with some MME Laundry Line crocheted flowers/Prima flower and BG glazed brads = great place to put the title! “teacher” is MM Flutter Glitter Bling Alphas in green. At the last minute I ended up sticking this gorgeous black washi tape, and love it.

Letters in the journaling are from the Girls Paperie jubilee sticker pack (which is just awesome.)

Random lace ribbon with washi tape on top. More Girls Paperie sticker words and doodling!

There you have it! Who says only photos should be featured in an album?!

Great layout Khristen!! I love how you scrapped around the card instead of a photo. Just a perfect idea.
Hope your little man is feeling better!
Love the new look of your blog. hugs, Stacy

OO love the masking tape over the lace ribbon and the misting! YAY to your daughter for her reading ability- that's got to make both of you proud. I hope your son already feels better. :)
