I wanted to make a scrap page that shows how much my youngest son loves his dad. He is always waiting for him at the window. One evening around Christmas I caught the action on camera. I finally scrapped the page. It is so special to me.. I hope you enjoy the journalism.

This was a long day for you Ian.

You sat in front of this window for hours waiting for daddy to come home.

You didn't understand why daddy had to go to work so close to the holiday.

So much excitement going on.

You would say "Were is my daddy"?

Back to the window you would stand looking out waiting Patiently.

On the envelope is written in Ian's words.

My daddy should be home soon. Mom come sit with me. We will wait together.

It won't be long. Look mom I am still waiting for my daddy. He will be so happy to see me when he gets home. I just know it..

Inside the letter has mommies words

Yes he will be so happy to see you when he comes home.

Daddy won't be home for a while.

Come away from the window and help me with dinner.

Daddy will be happy if you did that too.

Ok ! you sit there as long as you want.

I will join you when I am done here.

Look daddy came home before dinner is fixed.

Now you and daddy can play until it's time to eat.

Its all about the Hat

It's all about the hat!
All the pattern paper in this layout was made by the techniques we learned from Create Scrapbooks.
The back ground lace was painted with the Lumiere paint. I was lucky to already own some. The color in this layout is called (564 super copper)
The paper with the yellow and red flowers is made from the masking technique.
The red paper above that is made from the resist technique.
Now to the three pieces in the front running up and down.
1st lace one is made from Gesso and oil pastels. I use light yellow and light pink.
2nd is the masking tape technique with water color paint. I used red,pink and yellow and embossed it with white swirls.
3RD ONE IS THE TISSUE AND PERFECT PEARLS technique. I used Hot Pink with Gold perfect pearls on top.
The flowers were all cut out by yours truly and they are all made from the resist technique.
The Howdy is stamped on transparency and added over the center of the flower.

Title: Its All About The Hat
Journal Part says:

What a fun night we had trying on the red hat.
we took turns and had a little show of our own.
Even mom tried on the hat.
We played all night till it was time to go to bed.
Your little brother was laughing,but was to fast for mom to catch.
He loved watching us play with the big red hat.
we had a great family night.

Here is my most recent tag. It was made by using double decided tape and then stretching it apart. I added three different Martha Stuart brand glitters .. I really like the look of the glitter background. It really makes the tag pop.
