On Thursday morning I finished my next scrapbook page for the 52 weeks of stress-free scrapbooking.  So that means there are 50 more to go….I hope I can keep up.  I meant to get this one done earlier this week but the week got away from me.  The third one should be out on the blog today – so I’ll have to go check for it.

Kyle is my oldest son and he turned 18 this past November.  I can’t believe the time has passed so quickly.  He is camera shy or at least he tries to hide every time I have my camera out.  Maybe it is the age because Tyler has started to do the same thing.  Ryan on the other hand still likes to have his picture taken.

So the point is I don’t often get pictures of Kyle and even fewer of him looking at the camera.  These were some I took on his birthday. If you can read the words on his t-shirt  it says “I’d like to change the world – but I can’t find the source code…”

I figure one day Kyle will change the world – we’ll just have to wait and see what it will be that he does.

Here are the Stampin’ Up! Suppplies that I used:

  • Kraft card stock
  • Write Stuff Specialty Designer Series Paper
  • Chocolate Chip card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Extreme Elements stamp set
  • Sense of Time stamp set
  • Chocolate Chip craft and classic ink
  • 1-3/8″ circle punch
  • 1-3/4″ circle punch
  • Big Shot Die Cut machine
  • Go Go Boots Sizzlit Alphabet dies
  • Matchbox XL Die (for the label)
  • 1-1/4″ square punch

I think the page is pretty straight forward.  I used the square punch to cut the notch out of one strip of the designer paper – but you could do that with scissors too.   The Matchbox die has three labels on it and I used one to go behind my circle that has the quote on it.  I also inked the edges of that circle by pulling it through my Chocolate Chip ink pad.

A nice masculine looking page.  2 down and 50 more to go…..

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great weekend.
