Love you forever

I just love the first of every month.  It is filled with new challenges that excite my creative juices!  As you may know, if you are are a follower on mine, I am doing a scrapbook for my son who is expecting his first child.  I am filling it with all the special moments I cherished when he was a child.

I am amazed with this photo.  I have a deep aversion to clowns.  My son was having such a good time and I just couldn't resist this photo opportunity.  CSI is hosting a special case file with Scrap 365.  I simply feel in love with the vibrant colors and just had to join in the fun.
The Scheme:  I used all the colors
                                                   Evidence:      I used stripes, flowers, string, tied something
                                                   Testimony:    I put string around my journaling tag

 I gave the title a bit of an arch affect over a scalloped red edge to give it a tent appeal.

 This is the tag where I will write a special private note to my son. 

I have this fabulous punch press with bubbly holes.  I used it to create the corner edges and place a red card stock behind it.

Thank you for stopping by to see what the papers are saying today. My deepest apologies to my guests who have been so kind to leave me a message.  I just learned that I had that awful verification code in the on position.  I have turn it off now.  I hope you help me reach my goal of 50 followers.  Only 8 to go!!
