(his) Champion


Yes, I am back, not only from my friends but to the blogging community.....please stop the applause..my head is swelling (and Cindy, I felt that thought so stopppppppppppp it!, haha)

My gf Connie (aka http://craftygoodies.blogspot.com) is one of the best scrapbookers around and it's not because she's my friend..I love her style, the simplicity and most of all the passion she puts into her layouts which I feel is so evident when you look at her pics. She gave me a private lesson (yes, I said private) this weekend in her studio and I am so thrilled with what I walked away with.....I hope you agree.... thanks so much Connie! I ♥ you!

This is my nephew JP (married to my sweet niece, Kat) and their darling son, Jayden (look Jayden, it's you!!).....Jay is now 4 1/2 (got to get that 1/2 in there, right???) but I have always loved this picture. JP is a boxer and champion in that arena so the title was evident. What is also very evident to anyone who knows JP, it that Jayden is everything to him so that title was almost a no brainer... I am going to enjoy it in my craft room for about a month and then frame it for Kat & JP and I hope they will love it....

I used SU DSP paper which I dearly love. I raided my gf's stash of Jenni Bowlin letters and whooped out some cute ribbon and wahhlaa...don'tcha just love this pic as much as I do???? Let me know what ya think..I'd love to hear from ya.....

Check back soon...I have lots to share!!!!
