A Living Doll???

I am making a scrapbook for my Nephew Sean. As the family scrapbooker it has become a tradition that I make each of my Nieces and Nephews  a Scrapbook when they graduate from High School. My Nephew Sean graduates from High School this year so now it is his turn. I'm under a bit of a deadline so you will be seeing a lot of Sean in the coming weeks.

This a picture of him dressed in his sister's tutu. His sister is 4 years older than him and is like his second mommy. She was playing dress-up one day and decided he would be cute to dress up also.

The black cardstock is DCWV, the pattern paper is from a stack from Scrapworks called "Formal Affair". The Tutu is cut from the "Once Upon A Princess Cartridge". The journaling is computer generated, the font is a Free Font from Creating Keepsakes from the Free Font Fridays this is the font for this week. The font I used is called CK Stylish Black. The ribbon is some I had.

The Instructions for it can be found here....The Dinosaur is cut from the Create a Critter Cart at 6" .  The "5" and "Reese" is cut from Mickey Font. The plain card stock is DCWV...the pattern paper is some I've had forever and I don't know who makes it. On the center step is a gift card box that I had crafted.

Winter Park Art Festival 2011

Today I went to the Winter Park  Art Festival, you can read about the festival here. It is the 52nd Festival and I have probably been to half of them. It is one of my favorite things to do in my hometown of Winter Park. I LOVE going to see the different kinds of art, browse the sidewalk sales, and grab a funnel cake. This year I was able to go on a Friday, which was wonderful as it was less crowded and I was able to see more of the booths. The Florida weather was awesome today. We had a beautiful spring day with a sunny sky and temps in the low 80's. My festival buddies were my Great-Niece Cadence and my mom. I'm usually NOT this good about getting a LO done the same day that I took the pictures, in fact this might be a first. This LO was super easy as I used a program that I picked up at the festival. Every year an artist is chosen to make a poster to advertise the show. They then sell T-Shirts of the poster art. The poster was on the front page of the program so I used it on the first page along with the pictures of Cadence wearing her new WPSAF T-shirt. On page two the 52 Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival title and the "Hey Kids" was also cut from the program. The journaling is computer generated. The plain colored cardstock is Core'dantions, the pattern paper is Kay&CO Wild Raspberry stack.

So Many March Birthdays

March has so many birthdays in it for me.  I have 1 sister and 3 brothers and there are 3 of our birthdays in one week in March. My middle brother Gerald's (Ger) birthday comes first on the 8th. He is very active and just this last year competed in an Iron Man. I got this free download from Persnickety Prints for digi scrapping. I have not figured out digi scrapping but I'm grabbing all the free downloads that I can so I'm ready to roll when I do learn. I was able to print it out one of the elements to make this spinner card. The cardstock is Corediantions. The "track" that the spinner spins in, is punched using a Stamping Up Punch. I first drew a line where I wanted the track to be then I punched it out one whole length then went back and punched it a second time so it would be wider.  The inside I did a computer generated sentiment that reads...Happy Birthday and Happy Trails to you.....
