Whew! Is it Wednesday already?! This is one of those weeks I'm having immense trouble keeping up with what day it is...but yes, today is definitely Wednesday. And it just so happens to be Hayden's last day of fourth grade, and (weather permitting) field day! Technically, he'll be done with school around 11:30, but he asked if her could stay later and help his teacher, Mrs. Cottle, move her classroom. (She'll be teaching in a different area of the school next year, and thus, has to move into a new room.) He's concerned that there won't be anyone around to help her, and he wants to make sure she doesn't have to do it all by herself. And that pretty much sums up my boy - sweet, caring, and concerned. Have I mentioned how much I love him so?
So today here's a page (and quick tutorial) all about Hayden. And just a few of the the little details about his 10-year old self I don't want to forget:
My Boy | supplies: Bazzill cardstock (White, Mediterranean) + KI Memories patterned paper, chipboard letters, and star Puffies + Creative Memories circle punch + Studio Calico mist + Silhouette die cut machine + Creative Memories pen + Typenoksidi font
I started with my trusty Creative Memories Circle Maker, which has two different sized circles (approx. 1.5" and 1.25"). I punched 20 large circles from scrap cardstock and arranged them on a sheet of white cardstock, which I misted over with Mister Huey in Bonny Blue:
Once dry, I traced around the one of the cardstock mask circles with a blue pen to outline the edge of each circle. I used a dashed line to resemble stitching, but you could use a solid line, too!
Then I used the smaller circle to punch various patterned papers to fill the masked areas.
Since I wanted a crisp white background, I trimmed the misted sheet down to approximately 9" x 8.25" before adhering it to a sheet of white cardstock that was printed with my journaling.
I adhered each of the patterned circles with a foam adhesive square for dimension and topped a few of them with felt star embellishments. I then added my photos (printed 2" x 2.5") across the middle and a title (a combination of chipboard letters and die-cut cardstock.)
