At the end of Morgan's 2nd grade year in, June of 2014, they had a class party. They asked people to bring in props for fun photo booth pictures, really it was just a mom taking pictures of the kids dressed up, but they had a blast. I had bought these sticker mustaches to be used at our family pictures, but I forgot to bring them, so what a better use than for silly pictures at school!! Here is Morgan and Brandon mugging for the camera looking very "Lonely Hearts Club Band" from the Beatles and the fun mustaches!!
I used the wonderful papers and Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest, along with Paper House stickers and papers, paint from Plaid, and Want2Scrap Nestabling and Nestaboard to create this layout. For more info about The Robin's Nest items please see their blog HERE.
I used many colors as seen below of the Fleur cardstock from The Robin's Nest for this layout. The backsides of all these Fleur papers have this wonderful stripe that I mostly used for my layers. I used lots of strips to make layers upon layers over the Sun Yellow Glitter Cardstock. I used the backside of the Silver Roses cardstock to mat my picture.
Using the papers as my base of color, the Mustache 3D and Puffy Stickers from Paper House just added to the wonderful color scheme I already had going on, and also to the fun of the picture!! I then colored the wonderful title of "Brother" from Want2Scrap in a coordinating yellow paint blend (orange, yellow, brown, and white) from Plaid cutting off the "s" so the sentence "Brother I Like Your 'mustache'" made sense. I even added a little sticker Mustache from Paper House to the letter "t" for fun.
I also pulled the navy color from the layout using a mist to color the Nestaboard from Want2Scrap adding in pearl paint dots to the edges to coordinate with the layers of the Black Nestabling from Want2Scrap.
The colors of the paper stack "In the Wild" from Paper House just lent perfectly to this layout. I used various papers from the paper pad as strips in this layout. The strips are super easy to layer together with the ease of Xyron adhesives!! You can also see here that I used the Vanilla Fleur striped side from Robin's Nest to create the journaling strips, the lines made it super easy to write straight!!
I used the diamond Dew Drops from the Robin's Nest along the top and the bottom of the layout as a border in colors Pearl, Obsidian, and Aquamarine. Here you can also see more stripes from the Fleur papers.
I love these fun little moments where my kids just act like goofballs. It always make me smile when I see my kids having so much fun.
