Time For...


Another layout! Just a quick post here...(and a story).

They both idolize their Papa, but a few times during the week their Mama piques their curiosity. It could be when she is making chocolate chip cookies, or trying to clean with all the fun tools... Their Mama will take the time when she gets it, knowing all too soon that they will begin to get stingy with their time, with their affection. I so much cherish the time with just me and my boys. I know it is not grammatically correct, but it just sounds funny to say My Boys and Me...

 

The Scrap Doctor referred me to a really fun challenge called From Screen to Scrap where you base your layout off of a featured movie poster. This month's was for Sherlock Holmes. I took inspiration from the general layout of the poster as well as the colors. I also added some metal sticker embelllishments, my title is in a block and there is a touch of teal! I've been meaning to make a card based off the poster too, but alas, I ran out of time!

  11. Adorable LO and amazingly adorable little ones too Karen! I love simple pleasures like those.

    Oh, and it would actually not be grammatically correct to say "My boys and I", it should technically be "My boys and ME!", so you were closer than you thought! lol

    And now I've embarassed myself by admitting I'm a grammar guru.

  14. Awesome layout and love how you used the inspiration piece. I know what you mean about time with a boy. Mine is changing a lot this summer and doesn't come to me for hugs or a cuddle as much as he used to. sigh...enjoy every minute you get from them.

    Thanks so much for your comment on my blog, too:)
