Love You

Reaching way back into my photo stack, I found this adorable picture of my youngest son, now 13 years old. He was (and still is) so cute! This photo was so typical of our everyday...play, play, play. We certainly enjoyed our daily routines. In this particular photo, Teddy Bear is the recipient of little Kevin's love and smothering affection. Literally smothering.



Little bits of red are brought into the page, with the large brad at the top...



and the "everyday" strip beneath my journaling:


The little house shaped wood veneer reminds me of my own house! To give it a little color, I swiped a Tim Holtz inkpad over the veneer, a favorite and super easy way to color the embellishment, while leaving the wood-grain visible.

The house veneer and flowers were from my stash,  but everything else is from Scraptastic's June kit and add-on, Carry On.
