Chris...or is it Caleb?!

I've been waiting a long time to scrap this pic of my husband. It's my absolute favourite pic of him when he was a kid. I just love how he's looking off into the distance, and he looks like he's having a great time swinging! I was given the Mr. Campy collection by Cosmo Cricket from my favourite LSS Creative Accents to make something with, and when I saw the papers I knew they were made for this pic! Now I know why I didn't get that pic scrapped before...because I didn't have the Mr. Campy papers! I cut the tree trunk out with my silhouette, then I used an old creative memories circle punch for the leaves. The acorns are a quickutz shape, which I used the mr campy papers and the quickutz cork paper, I also used the cork to cut out the title, which I cut with the Fiesta font by quickutz. I used my Score Pal to make the plaid imprint on the craft cardstock, then I added the two colors on the embossed lines with Distress Inks. I covered the chipboard leaves with mr. campy too! I hid the journaling behind the raised picture and used another quickutz shape (the tab) on the edge of the journaling block so it can be pulled out. I hope you enjoy it, and hopefully I've inspired you in some way! I know I get so much inspiration by blog hopping, so I hope I can share some with you too!

BTW, don't you think Chris (my hubby) looks just a little bit like our middle son Caleb? lol
