Ice Packs


We've seen our fair share of ice packs here in the Baker household in the past week or so. One hard fall off the bike (helmet on!) and one claw part of the hammer to the head. Two injuries, two boys, thank goodness!

I'm here today with a Carbon Copied (same stamp set, same challenge, same day!) post with the fun and talented Kelly from Kelly's Place! I've followed Kelly for a long while, she has two boys as well and makes the cutest of cute cards with Lawn Fawn stamps, not to mention she is so incredibly nice. We are using the fresh and funky runway photo from Runway Inspired Challenge and Lawn Fawn's On The Mend set!


So I was inspired by the chevrons, and the orange/gray combo. The chevron is from Lawn Fawn's petite Bright Side paper collection, a lot of fun! Instead of gold, I opted for a fun yellow hue.

Please stop on over to Kelly's blog, because I'm sure she has something cute and fun to show you as well!

*(I'd love for you to join me in on a future Carbon Copied post! Check out the details here...)*

What a great way to use the photo inspiration Karen! The little tortoise looks just fine perfect un-coloured :0)
Sounds like you have two active lads Karen, I think boys work out life through learning from accidents more than girls do :0)
