Getting Back into a little bit of Scrapbooking

Please see the Post below this one for the
Phindy's Place Blog Hop. 
(Ends Thursday)

Goodmorning....  Just a quick post from me today.  I thought I would share my latest scrapbook page with you all.  I always have such trouble trying to think of new things to use for a BOY!  It's crazy, because you just can't embellish the way you would if you had a girl.  ha ha....

I decided to take a digital stamp from The Greeting Farm, (Marina Neira Collection) and enlarge it.  The one I used is actually a freebie on the TGF blog

I altered the bear from being a New Years Baby, to just a plain old bear.  Hoping he doesn't look too baby like.  LOL
I then set out to create my page using stars and paw prints for my sons first ever Honorable Mention.  If you only knew how proud I was (am) of him for getting this far.  He's struggled with serious ADHD for years, so this was quite the accomplishment. 

Okay, I suppose I have to get myself to work, even though I'd rather stay home and work on more scrapbook pages, but you know how it goes....  I wouldn't be able to "Play" if I didn't work first.

The funny thing about the paw prints I placed around the page is that the school's mascot is a cougar, and there are always paw prints on everything around the school.  So this worked out well. I cut the stars and brackets out using my Cricut.  I have found that using my cricut for scrapbooking stuff is easier than using it for making cards.  So that is a machine that I have not used a whole lot lately, but getting back into using it more now that I'm working on scrapbooks again. 

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!!!
