Scrapbooking for Caden

If you keep up with Makeesha's blog (link is to the left) you will see she has fabulous tutorials each week. The last one was a Photo Board, which I thought was so cute. So I picked out a photo and whipped up this one with the supplies I had on hand.

Mine measures 8x8 and I've used some thin board which I've had stashed away in my craft room for ages. Hubby cut some up for me, once upon a time, and I knew I would have some use for them eventually. I've used Wild Wasabi cardstock for the base and used the star stamps from Nursery Necessities as a background. Then I've used some DP from Petals & Paisley and used the spiral punch along one edge. You will notice the elephants in the background (from Caden's rocker), so I've stamped up the elephant from the same stamp set in So Saffron and used the circle punch and scallop punch. The sentiment 'little cutie' on the tab is also from the same stamp set. I've finished it off with ribbon and also a clip.

This will sit nicely above my desk in my craft room.
