Happy Bear & New Layouts.

It's been busy around here, especially the past few days with three sick girls. They are starting to feel a bit better so I thought I would share a few layouts and photos today.

My first layout of Thomas uses Basic Grey papers & buttons, Ranger clear embossing powder, Versamark clear ink, and Autumn Leaves alphabet stamps. I love using neutral cardstock colors and adding colorful embellishments.
This next layout of Mindi uses the same clear ink and embossing powder, a few chipboard letters and thread. I like the way the black & white elements look with my color photos.
This last layout has more photos of my son, Thomas. I started with a Pink Paislee background and added Making Memories chipboard arrows, & Autumn Leaves File folder & alphabet stamps. These are photos I took on the first day of school. The file folder holds a copy of his class schedule.
Yesterday, I went to the kids school to dress up as Happy Bear for the Kindergarteners. It's so fun to see their faces light up with excitement! This was the second class I have worked with and there is one more to go in March. My friend used my camera to take the first pic of me dressed as Happy Bear. The second one was an attempt by me to get another shot of myself in the mirror.

Have a great weekend!
