Levi and Little Tex (Colten) - November, 2009 "WINNER over at If The Shoe Fits ~ Scrap It"

Hello everyone!!!  We have had a beautiful weekend here in south/central Texas.  A little windy, but the sun is shining, the birds are singing and it's just an all around beautiful day ~ perfect for scrapbooking, but then any day is perfect for scrapbooking for me!  Here is a layout I did of my son and his son, my little grandson Colten.  He is wearing big sister's hat and just looks soooo cute.  This picture was taken back in November when Colten just turned 1 year old...  The sentiment on the hat reads "It's the little things the make life BIG"..  And I mean it literally in this layout!!  Our children and grand children are all we have to show for ourselves when we are gone..  And they mean the world to us!!   Okay on with the details ~ I also did this for a few challenges which are:
Stuck On U Sketches ~ Sketch
A Spoon Full of Sugar ~ Lots of Layers
Crafty Calendar ~ Keeping Warm (the colors)
Frosted Designs ~ Chipboard
Fussy & Fancy Friday ~ Winter (colors)
If the Shoe Fits ~ Scrap It ~ Inspiration from ad ~ used the arrow
PaperPlay ~ handwriting on the arrow
Pile It On ~ Warm Wishes (Colors)
HFOS ~ Swirls
Crafty Ann's Challenge ~ Embossing
Quixotic ~ Ink up old stamp ~ sentiment on hat is from old SU set.
Scrap & Stamp Saturdays ~ Use your stash  and use a stamp
YNS ~ Anything that sparkles
When I started this yesterday it was also to be for the Practical Scrappers Challenge which was embossing.  I didn't realize that it ended last night...  I would have gotten it done yesterday if I hadn't had to help build fence...  My son was helping DH, but had to leave around 5:00PM, so you guessed it, I was volunteered to finish it up...  Oh well, at least the weather was pretty...
Okay here's what I used:
SU Chocolate Chip ~ CS and Ink
SU Brocade Blue CS & Ink
My Mind's Eye - Breaking Free ~ Four Miles Stripe
My Mind's Eye - Breaking Free ~ Blue Texture
My Mind's Eye - Bella Bella ~ Dark Brown Polka Dots
My Mind's Eye - Wild Asparagus ~ Merry Christmas Dots
Paper Loft - Grandma's House ~ Herb Garden/Annies Apron Double sided PP
SU Kraft CS
We R Memory Keepers ~ Hardware on hat
SU Canvas Background Stamp ~ Hat band
SU Happy Harmony Stamp ~ sentiment
The Paper Studio ~ Burlap paper (lasso)
Thickers ~ Chipboard Letters ~ Jewelry Box Brown
Zing Embossing Powder
The Paper Studio - Stickabilities ~Dream Stickers
Prima ~ Petite Fleur Vine Wildroses - Cut the large ones off and left the buds on.

Have a wonderful day and
