Daddy's Photo Shoot

Last July I sent John off with the boys to get their pictures taken. Cute, coordinated outfits were brought along (ok, coordinating with one of our paper packets, lol...), but the boys went in their cheap-o 4th of July t-shirts, having learned my lesson long ago that if you put them in the photo outfits even 5 minutes before you get there it's pretty much guaranteed that SOMETHING will happen to said outfits. I couldn't go along, since I was teaching a workshop that day. You can imagine my surprise when he returned...with these adorable-but-not-what-I-planned-for pics of the fourth of July t shirts...riding a a football stadium. 

Still those grins are pretty adorable!

In this version of a Studio J layout we learned to use My StickEase as a border for that cute open scalloped border. The paper packet was originally called Magic Moments, and it's a super cute Cocoa, Hollyhock, Goldrush and Indian Corn Blue polka dotty and floral packet...not exactly screaming tractor pull until you change out all the colors, eh? We also learned how to make a layered ribbon bow (adding extra knots and flipping the rotation - brilliant and fast!) AND we made that striped ribbon by stretching a journaling box and filling it with ///////// backslashes!!  How cool is that? 

Thanks for driving by!
