Get Up: Simple Stories

This is the first layout in a series I will be posting with my new favorite manufacturer: Simple Stories! These next few posts feature the Happy Day line, which suggests birthday, but I was able to use this versatile collection for a big photo shoot at our local park!  I also used Close To My Heart chocolate cardstock and twill ribbon, along with American Crafts thickers.  The chocolate ric rac is from Wal Mart, and the rough burlap-textured twine was purchased in a grab box at the 2011 Creating Keeepsakes convention.  Of course, I distressed as many edges as the skin on my fingers would stand! LOL!

So, So Big!

So, So Big!   I am famous for taking 50-75 photos of my son, when probably a handful would suffice, but I feel like I never know what I might get in the photos if I take a bunch!  Subtle differences, tiny movements, a nuance of an expression.....precious are those photo frames!  I am also famous for not measuring anything on my layouts, and being more of an "eyeballer" when placing elements!  So, there you have it!  Add in diagonal stripes on patterned paper, and here is what you get!  I didn't journal, but basically, Ezra is feeding himself completely without my help or hovering!
