Hello Friends! I am back to share a little more of the All American collection from Bella BLVD.
products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Bella BLVD (All American); alpha - Bella BLVD; other - Bella BLVD: chipboard, crochet hearts, stickers, flags; paint, brads; tools - typewriter.
With this layout I wanted to showcase how to use these patterned papers especially if you don't have any 4th of July/Americana photos to scrap. Living in Australia, I struggled to come up with an idea at first. Then I saw all the cute little fire crackers in the collection. Instead of creating a layout with fireworks in the "traditional" sense.. I thought I'd use them in a "metaphorical" way. Yes. My middle son has a temper. *grin*
Journaling: always quick to heat up, followed usually with a huge explosion!
Granted.. His temper tantrums usually come after his big brother has been antagonising him or I have repeatedly asked him to clean his room.. And it is not always a pretty sight. But I wanted to document this aspect of his character. Hmmm. I am hoping that he will eventually outgrow this need to vent his frustrations in this particular way. And so I scrap it. The good, the bad and the ugly! *grin*
Thanks for visiting..x
