The story of the flustered aunt...

Play-on-in-style

So last Saturday was an aunt's worst nightmare [okay...I have been known to exaggerate a wee bit...*LOL*]. 
3 nephews + 1 niece + super crowded playground with 15 other kids = 1 flustered aunt! 
It was so hard to keep track of my gangster gang! *winks*


But smiling faces like this one makes it all worthwhile. [This layout features nephew #2 back in July. ] 

Playing along with Bird is the word and OUAS + CSI. My evidence: bird, leaves, star, rub-ons. My testimony: Journal on photo.

Supplies: American Crafts patterned papers and thickers, Crafter's Workshop template, Maya mists, SRM sticker, Unity stamp, washi tape, buttons, ribbon, rub-ons, felt embellishments, black pen, white pen.

Heck, even being the parent at a crowded playground gets crazy! It's definitely not for the faint of heart. Love that big toothy smile - and the masked stars? Brilliant :)

Naomi Edwards said...

Hi Yvonne!
You always know what to put where in your layouts, just love it, I really like the writing around the photos and the small touches of red and black that you used.... The background is spactacular as usual and I love how one photo your nephew is geared to the teeth and the next he's crashed, hahaha brilliant.. Great story , you always make me laugh..gangster gang...hahahaha

Audrey Pettit said...

I so understand........that is a lot of wee ones to keep track off in a crowded spot....especially since they never hold still. :) LOVE your layout~ The paint splatters and misted star background are fabulous. Love the ribbon tabs and the stitched felt leaves. Great journaling on the photo, too!

Els said...
