LOAD Day 27- Lil' Wildcat!

Lain's challenge today was to go 'over the top' with our layout today. This
was a lot harder that I expected it to be for a couple of reasons...

1) We had family over and the house had be cleaned up (read as -my
scrap stuff had to be moved out of the living room and dining room
so everyone could walk around and the kids could play!) and

2) After the Cocoa Daisy scraplift layout, I think my 'over the top'
mojo got up and went! I just haven't had the same intense creativity
since I worked on that layout. Not sure why. Probably burned out
2 of the last 4 working brain cells. That would explain most of the
forgetfulness and goofiness of the last several days, and

3) I just couldn't find a photo that really worked with 'over the top'
today. Again, see 1 & 2 as to why locating a photo was so difficult.

So, when I found the twins' Fall 2nd grade photo I immediately
started digging through my school papers and found the boy
chalk board paper and the Wildcats themed papers and a layout
was born! Thank goodness for school photographers who dream
of celebrity style photo shoots! LOL!

My personal journaling to Buddy is all on a hidden tag that can
be pulled out using the bit of red ribbon showing from the right
of the layout. Now, I just need to complete Punkin's layout and
journaling and I can add them to their School of Life albums!

Here is my supply list:
"I will not chase girls" chalkboard patterned paper - Rusty Pickle
"Wildcat" patterned paper & Spirit Scraps Topper - 2 Scrappin' Sisters (circa 2002)
Lipstick red chalk cat eye ink pad - Color Box
Red ink & Blue ink pens - Sharpie
Red ribbon - my stash (I think it was part of an old hair bow)
Staples- Office Depot
Jenni Bowlin Journal card

Well - it is day 27. Only 1 day left and I will have
made it all the way through all 28 days! Yay!!

Everything is uploaded! See you tomorrow!

Great job!! He is a cutie & I like the idea of the tag for him to read down the road.
Now that this challange is done, will you keep making a layout a day? Or maybe get back into your studio? Mine is a mess come help.

Thanks Laura!
I am trying to decide what
to do next. I have really
enjoyed LOAD. I know I do
need to clean out and that
will be my next step.

Besides- I've seen your
Studio and it's Fab!!
