Picture This

I love that my kids love to draw as much as I did and I love capturing the looks on their faces when they are really focused on what they are creating.
I snapped this photo of Jack drawing at a restaurant using my camera phone and love the candid quality of it.
I used Teresa Collins Sweet Afternoon papers, and used the numbers from the embellishment sheet to make typewriter keys to embellish. I adhered the numbers to the buttons and then topped them with glaze.
I used a sketch from Creative Scrapbookers:
I also completed the challenge for Scrap It Girls using numbers.


  1. Great page, I love how you transformed the buttons into typewriter keys, great idea. Thanks for joining in at Scrap It Girl.

  2. This is so cute! Love the yellow/white/black color combo, and love your use of numbers too! Thanks for playing with us at Scrap It Girl's August challenge!

  3. Thank you for entering the Scrap It Girl "Use your Numbers" Design Challenge. Your entry is inspiring -- I have a nephew and would like to use girly papers on his layouts -- it's not that easy to pull it off but you did :) For more crafty inspiration follow my FB Page:
