good catch ...

Back again with another LO!!  The challenge at Scrap the Boys for April is all about recycling - I really enjoy using cool bits from packaging and the like, that I've collected.  I've had this denim tag from some clothing sitting on my desk for quite a while, so it was a great opportunity to use it!!  Here's what I've created:

 I had these photo's of Liam and his fish - he really wanted me to make a page for this fun time that he had.  My boys always love it when I make pages about them ☺
Once again, I've used papers from My Minds Eye.
Here are some close-up's:
... a little Maya Road wooden ruler and wooden button from Prima ... and some washi tape from Sawyers Place - I've used a strip on the shipping tag ... more journalling from my vintage typewriter ♥

... a shipping tag with the journalling and also the recycled denim clothing tag ...

Another page done ☺ Thanks for coming by.

This is awesome Chantelle! Love the touch of denim and that background paper from MME is just perfect for boys isn't it (I just did a LO with it too). Good luck in the challenge =)

I think you found the perfect place for the denim tag, it looks right at home. I too love my vintage typewriter - it adds an "old is new" dimension to layouts, since most people use more digi now.
