The Help

Yesterday I attended a ScrapMuch? crop and had a fabulous time with family and friends. I also finished almost 6 layouts....two for fun and the rest are DT reveals, so you will have to wait to see those.

Today I am sharing one of the for fun layouts.....

Last fall one weekend when the boys came for a sleepover, they were very happy to help Papa clean up the front yard leaves. We have A LOT of mature trees on our property which means A LOT of leaves to clean up in the fall! The boys thought it was great fun, hopefully they still feel that way in a few years when we get older and will really need their help!!!
The top picture makes me laugh every time I look at it. Mason wanted to get in one of the bags, but couldn't stand up in it, so I put it over his head...he then asked, "Nana, can you see me?" LOL!!! Can you see him? 

Here are some closeups....
I used that fabulous circle stamp again that I purchased last fall at the ScrapMuch? sale! For sure my best buy!!! I then cut a heart from some corrugated cardboard that was packing in the box of our son's BBQ! Fabulous for using to make shapes or tags!

All my papers, stickers and layered chipboard are Echo Park except for the frames around the photos that are cut from AC Cardstock. I layered up some stickers and chipboard with a light bulb clip from The Paper Studio.

More layering of stickers and chipboard.

I used the new sketch by Laura Whittaker for Boy's Rule Scrapbook Kits as inspiration.

I was also inspired by the Lessology Challenge #43 to use discarded cardboard. Although my piece is is there!

And Use You Stuff Challenge #169 to use Geometric Shapes - I used circles and squares.

Have a wonderful Sunday and stay crafty!!!
