This kid was such a ham bone!  Dancing a little happy dance in Boppa's garage.  For no apparent reason, just being goofy.   You know, when I am having one of  t-h-o-s-e days, when nothing seems to be going right, when I just want to throw my hands in the air and give up; it's looking back on these moments that lighten my heart and bring a smile to my face. 

I used a combination of papers on this one, the base sheet is from Authentique, the Loyal collection, the layering pieces are Basic Grey (really just pieces left from other projects), Silly Boy sticker title is from Echo Park's A Boy's Life.  Once the paper layers were assembled, but before I attached the whole stack, I stamped the honeycomb pattern (a Tim Holtz stamp) and spattered some black ink and white paint.  Then stamped some stars and started tucking in some tabs (stamped Ali Edwards "Remember" journaling piece) and XOXO from a Creative Imaginations sticker sheet, cut out the medallion shape and punched a couple of stars.  It was really just a matter of adding little snippets and pieces of stickers and things--pieces of washi, some buttons, the star shaped paper clip and the little number "7" sticker (since he was 7 at the time of this photo.  Last was to draw in a border around the edge of the page and add my journaling down the right side. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend--you never can tell when a scrappy moment will occur!
