Momma's Little Man....

I've been at it again! I got out my paint the other day along with some of my husband's old jeans. I cut the jeans up and used pieces to make the elements on my newest page. I used my trusty old Sizzix die cutter and a new die I got at Michael's a couple months ago. I still love that Sizzix machine! You can't cut denim on a Cricut... OR CAN YOU?? I doubt it :)

Now, I understand some people may think this is sloppy or just plain ole ugly. That is fine! I didn't make this to win any awards, I just made it to play with my stuff and see what I could come up with and to "think outside the box" for a while. Scrappin' has no guidelines, we just do it the way we like, right? That is what I've done here... I like it :)

Anyways... here it is, thought I share it to see what everybody else thought about it.


I like to see pictures of the details on other people's layouts. So, here are a couple of close-ups for you of mine.



Let me know what you think.
Have a great day and Happy Scrappin'

Love the layout and the out of the box design. I love inking, painting, ripping and tearing. It keeps me from getting stale on my designs. Also, it resembles my son's personality!!! I save back an old pair of my son's jeans and am going to try the denium on a layout. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
