It's a bird, it's a plane, it's the cutest little super hero ever!  Well to me he is. 

This was from Jacob's first real Halloween at age two.   Looks like he didn't quite know what to make of the party and costumes at daycare.  I think this may be one of those pages that go into Nana's album---they can fight me for it! 

I was inspired from watching a video on Prima's You Tube channel.  Drew Scott was making a lovely, very layered page and he did it by cutting up one 12x12 sheet of journaling boxes into different size boxes and rearranging them under the photo.  So, although my page looks n-o-t-h-i-n-g like his very vintage page, it is the jumping off place that got me started. 
Papers and journaling boxes are from Echo Park's Little Boy collection.  I also tucked in just the corners or edges from a few stray scraps and stickers that were out on my desk at the time.  The little clouds with the lightening bolts were on the opposite side of a piece of the Echo Park paper and all I had left was a scrap... but it was just enough to cut out three of them.  And, as long as I was cutting stuff out, I cut out some stars and added those with pop dots.  To balance the red from the top left corner, I added the Remember This sticker (from Jillibean Soup) in the opposite corner.  Liked the extra touch of red so much, I added the red pearls.  Last was to draw in all the stitch lines and do my journaling. 

And, oh yeah, this little wonder boy is so going to be added to Nana's album.
