Stylin & Profilin

Last week, was a busy week on the Blog, but things kind of slowed down after Friday.  I wish I could say the same for myself!!  :)  I have been busy with DT layouts, DT comments, hanging out at Club CK, working to get our daughter enrolled under a cover school for this year, ordering Curriculum for the upcoming school year...and anything and everything else in between!!  :)  But I did stop for about an hour yesterday to work on a layout for one of my favorite challenges at Club CK, the weekly Issue Challenge.  This week, we were challenged to use Slang on our layout.  Here is what I came up with:

I thought this title was a perfect fit for these photos of our little guy, in his Toboggan and shorts during the middle of Summer and 90+ degree weather!!  He was hanging out in the chair watching Dora, so I snapped a few pics of him while he was sitting still...which doesn't happen often.  I also incorporated one of the challenges going on at Club CK for their Annual Summer Camp, taking place this week.  On Monday, they offered a coloring page print out to use on your layouts or projects.  You can print the images on regular paper or a transparency and re-live your childhood by coloring in the images to your heart's content!! I used the banner image and printed it on patterned paper.  Once I cut out each of the pieces, I used a Teal colored pencil to fill in the thin edge around each of the banners.

And since I was a little pressed for time, I decided to use the awesome Sketch #128 from Creative Scrappers for this page.

If you would like to join in with Summer Camp at Club CK, then head over this week to the Club Blog and the Creating Keepsakes Blog.  Lots of fun challenges and info coming your way this week!
