Thursday and a New Smile

Happy Thursday!

Last weekend I was able to squeak in a little scrapping just for me!  I love it when that happens.  Last year Jack lost his first tooth.  He was so excited.  He lost it right before bed and was so worried that the tooth fairy would take his tooth.  He wanted to keep it.  So we wrote the tooth fairy a note telling her that Jack wanted to keep his tooth.  Obviously being a huge scrapbooker I took a photo of his new smile and I saved the note and tucked it away to save for a layout.

Jump ahead to this past weekend and I new I wanted to scrap this photo of him.  The problem is the note got a little damaged.  That totally can happen in this household with 2 boys.  So when I was getting out my Jillibean Soup papers I found this great journaling card and rewrote the note on it.  I then had Jack sign the card just like he did last year.  He loved the idea because the note was torn to pieces by a little one who shall remain nameless LOL!

So for this layout I was able to mix some new Grandma's Lima Bean Soup with some of my scraps from older collections.  I so love that the colors all mix well together.  I also added some red and white twine on my journaling tag and also some natural burlap twine in my buttons.  Both are from The Stringery!  I also added the new banner bits from Jillibean.    I am really addicted to these little embellishments.  Then finally I had to add a bit of flair and some canvas stars from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new project.  See you then! Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Love the layering and color/pattern combo on here, Mary Pat. Such a cute photo too. In our house, the Tooth Fairy knew I was a scrapbooker so she always let Alexa keep the teeth. :) True story! LOL!
