Happy Earth Day

Scrapping the Little Things - with a twist! Use a recycled item on your project. Mine is a tuna can label. :) Anybody remember the "Sorry Charlie" tuna commercials?!

8 1/2x11 page for the man-child's fishing and hunting scrapbook. Hubs determined by these pics that new fishing clothes are in order. LOL!!!

Computer generated tag, and the tuna can label as a ticket. I thought this was so clever of me. Hahaha!

This whole page design and color scheme was inspired by the red polka dot scrap of paper I used as a flag. It was already cut like this and everything. I loved the pop of red and thought it made for a rather nautical theme, particularly since it was a flag cut already.

I thought the MCT clouds were the perfect way to add space for details. I used another little red flag on a toothpick to balance the page. Title is Fun Alphabet dies, and the sunburst is from the Build a Banner kit.

  3. You are so clever using the tuna label! What a handsome guy in the picture (at least he didn't ruin good clothes, right hehehe)! Another beautiful layout! Have a great day! Love and Hugs, CAthryn :)

  4. What a creative way to use the clouds! I love this simple and oh, so nautical layout; with all the sweet little flags flapping in the breeze. Brilliant use of the tuna label for Charlie's cameo appearance!
    I can't believe the hubs was distracted by his clothes!
