Here's lookin' at you....

 Today is scrapping the little things over at My Creative Time. Since it's April Fools Day, we were asked to do something silly, or pulling a prank, or something along that line. Well, my daughters had texted me these pics awhile back and I thought they would fit along the silly theme. So, here's my double page spread in my Smashbook.

Aren't they silly? I tell you, these little guys make me laugh every day! How cute are those glasses? 

Girls first. So, for Miss Aleida's page, obviously pulled out the pinks in the photo. I used a mat from my Project Life collection and layered it under one corner. Added some faux stitching, put down a bit of Washi tape, and then added elements using MCT products. 

I love the big stamps that are in the Camera Shy stamp set. They are nice and chunky...and I like how Emma laid them out. This is one of the sentiments. I layered it and used dimensionals to pop it up. And of course had to call attention to my grand babies being so!

I used the pocket die from Fun Pockets stamp set and tucked a couple of the tickets coming out. Added the cheese and glasses and glittered them up a bit.

Now for Mr. Karson. He's such a honey! I tell you what, not a sweeter baby around! And...he is SUCH A HAM!!! For real! I tell, he just makes me laugh.
Again, I used a Project Life mat, layered and did some faux stitching. Put down more Washi tape, too. Cell pics didn't print the best, but at least I have them to cherish the memory years from now.

So, also from Camera Shy, I chose this sentiment for him....totally fits him to a tee! Popped it up with dimensionals as well. 

I again tucked in some ticket stamped with the camera from the same set. I added a mustache with his's a guy Added a bit of glitter around the edge of the ticket.

Being Easter and all today, and a very busy weekend, this is the extent to which I had I figured being my Smashbook, I can add my notes and doodles and more to it later if I choose. 

So, here's the list of supplies I used.

Get out some pics, a Smashbook or scrapbook, and save those memories! Time goes by so fast...I have more done of my grand babies than my own kids! The point is, I'm doing it now...and I hope one day they will appreciate it! Have fun, but at least get those pics and the stories with them someplace safe to look back at years down the road. You won't regret it...even if you're like me...starting a little late. Better late than they say! Happy crafting!
