Brave Adventurous Boy & Silly Mermaid Girl

I have 2 layouts to share this week for Friends with Flair!

The first one is of my sweet 14 month old boy.  We were goofing off the other day and I took some snapshots of him.  He's smiling and laughing in most of the other pics but there is just something I love about this one.  Even though he's got his hand in his mouth teething and it's slightly blurred on the edge I really just LOVE this picture of him and so of course I had to scrap it immediately!  Since I received my May KOM I've been itching to use that cute Polaroid frame and this picture almost begged for it.  The sentiment/poem/title was something I saw on Pinterest a while back and bookmarked it to use for maybe a sign for his door but scrapbooking is my thing and I don't know how to make signs so I turned it into a layout!


I don't even know how many different types of alpha stickers I used on here.  I also used some old rub-ons and several Unity stamps as well.





Supplies used:  My Minds Eye Wander paper, Unity Stamp Company stamps (polaroid frame, brave crown, live each moment banner from May 2012 KOM; adventurous from Nuts and Bolts; Imagine from Donna Downey Inspire Words; Dream Big Itty Bitty; boy from SMAK Nov 2011; Chicken Wire background)
Tim Holtz Distress markers, assorted alpha stickers mainly Echo Park, Authentique and Fundamentals.

The second layout I want to share this week is another princess layout of my daughter (you may recall the Cinderella layout from last week).  She is SO VERY princess obsessed right now but her absolute FAVORITE is The Little Mermaid, Ariel.
We were playing outside a couple of weeks ago in the 80+ degree May weather at the splash table and I guess it wasn't enough for Jasmine just to splash in the table, suddenly she was climbing in it and said "Look at me, Mom, I'm cooling off!  I'm just like The Little Mermaid!



I have always had a hard time leaving "white space" on layouts so I had to stop myself from adding too much here.  It was SO challenging for me to match colors with the mermaid!  Orangeish red hair, turquoise fin and purple top, I went through almost every paper in my collection to finally settle on this light green vellum.




Supplies used:  Sandylion paper, Cricut Dreams Come True cartridge (Ariel border), Cosmo Cricket alpha stickers, Unity Stamps (He, She, You Said, Boys Rule and Bitty Regards)

That's all for me today, happy June to you all!!!
