A Boy's First Hero................


..................is his Daddy of course! This layout captures that idea for my hubby and our youngest son, Blake. I wanted pics of Andrew and Blake with him in uniform but Blake doesn't like it cause daddy is HARD (the vest, the radio, the gun, you get the idea) So I took these pics one night after Andrew got off work but he still had his SJPD uniform turtleneck on. I just love how it turned out! I hand stamped the title using Headline Alpha and my stamp -a-ma-jig - if you haven't ever tried one you really should! And have someone who knows what they are doing show you - I love it cause now I can stamp perfect titles!!!!! The journaling is also stamped but it is using Papertrey Ink's Simple Alphabet. I just love their stamps! And paper and ribbon and ink! This is using SU's I'm here Boy simply scrappin kit and a Janurary sketch from Page Maps. Oh and here is a close up of the journaling. It also shows the doodleing around the letters and on the blue stars that I did for some details. Thanks for looking

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
