Raising this little guy has been different than the older two. Colten and Carson were born so close together (one year, one month, one week and one day apart), that it felt like I had always had two kids. They were into the same things nearly at the same time. They always had a buddy for entertainment. Jaxon, on the other hand, has only me during the school day. And he has me full-time, unlike his brothers, who saw Mom go to the dance studio for 30+ hours a week. So, our dynamic is different, and I am enjoying every possible moment. Like the one pictured in this layout.
Yes, it's a weed, but the sweet thought behind it is heart-melting. Really, there are no weeds when your boys offer you flowers ;). He is such a happy kid, and his happiness makes me happy.
I made this layout for the current challenge at The Studio - alter your background. I tend to alter the background of just about every page I make with mist or paint, so this time around I thought I would use rub-ons. I used a punchinella rub-on sheet from Glitz Designs, adding dots here and there, some overlapping and some distressed. I misted a bit on top of the dots, too.
If you'd like to play along, you can find the challenge here. And just to give you a heads up, in November it's my turn to set the challenges. I've got some ideas twirling around that I think will be fun, as well as a fabulous prize to give away! Thanks for stopping by today :). Have a good one! Tessa
