Goofballs

The Challenge:
Scrap your everyday life or take inspiration form your everyday tasks

My everyday life is full of these goofballs!  They are crazy, funny, loud, and I love them so much.  Life would be very boring without my family.  There is a lot of laughter in our home and I wanted to have a layout that celebrated that!  I tried to use lighthearted, whimsical embellishments and I got to use some of my favorite stamps!  I stamped them in black and then colored them in with colored pencils and finished them off with glitter glue.  I also chose the ledger patterned paper and the wood grain paper for the ordinary, everyday feel they gave.  I added the little wavy border sticker for the bit of crazy that is my family.

I did another one for my nephew's album too.  Just a couple of photos, hanging out with Daddy.  I got to use some of my fun, boy Authentique paper and a Sketches in Thyme sketch.  I like the blanket stitch paired with the denim paper.

I just saw both of these on the Issue Challenge thread and they are awesome!! Those photos on your double pager are so fun and I LOVE the little googly eyes you added to your title! The second one is so sweet and I love the red, blue, and yellow color scheme and that stitched border is really awesome!!
