Goodness Gracious Boy!

Hi everyone, Norma here with you today!  

You know I'm not a real big scrapbooker but I always look forward to doing Scrapbook Saturday.  I have so many pics that I would like to scrapbook.  I think that scrapbooking is such a great way to tell the stories behind photos that might other wise be forgotten.  It's also a fun way to get creative with papers, stamps and paints.  The overall layout not only tells the story of the subject but of the scrapbooker.

I was going through my photos and I came across these great pics of my youngest getting into all sorts of things.  Combined they tell of the story of my sweet and silly boy.

I wanted to create a fun feeling to match my silly boy so I combined several stamps sets.  I used circles from Sacred Geometry (must have set), Hanging Stars, Art Textures, Southern Sayings, A Perfect Alphabet and A Banner Day (40% off this month).

I stamped some of the circles from Sacred Geometry in paint and others in Colorbox ink.  To stamp with paint I added paint to my palette paper then smeared it using a brayer.  Then I just rolled the brayer over my stamp.  If you use paint with your stamps be sure to clean them real good afterwards.  I stamped all of the stars on the Hanging Stars set then outlines some with a white Signo pen (another must have).  The banner and most of "I Love You" are from the A Banner Day set.  I used A Perfect Alphabet for the "I" and "Love You" from A Banner Day.

I used patterned paper and a fabric brad from the Creative Girl Nesting Components kit.  I cut the circles using a punch and scalloped Spellbinders die.  My sentiment "Goodness gracious" is from Southern Sayings.  I just added "boy!" using the A Perfect Alphabet (another great set to have).

To finish off my layout I added a little journaling and a cute quote from my paper stash.  Super easy layout but I think I was able to captured my son's sweet adventurous spirit.  Well friends that's all for today, thank you so much for joining me and enjoy your weekend.  Hugs to you all!!
