What Did I Get Myself Into
by Amy

12 x 12 | materials patterned paper (BasicGrey, Pebbles, Photo Play) + alphabet stickers (American Crafts, Crate Paper, Heidi Swapp) + printed die cuts (Simple Stories)

A Note from Amy
This picture flashed up on the screen-saver photo-slide-show thing on my computer (what is that even called?) the other day and I thought, "OH! How have I not scrapped that story yet? It's a hilarious picture!" A great coincidence that it also goes along with this month's gallery theme! Big pictures overlaid with scrapping supplies is one of my current favorite techniques.

April Fun Fact
Don't you think that April is a month deserving of new sandals? I can't explain why, but every time I flip the calendar over to April, I get an itch for new, summery footwear. Definitely the boots will be put away until October!

Oh, these boys. They were both pretty excited to get you home and into our lives. After they’d had a bath and were ready for bed, they came and sat with you and me in my bedroom, so they could hold you & hug you & kiss your cute face. But that quickly escalated to jumping on the bed & running around & laughing. Just what they do every day. You slept right through it—mostly, I think, out of self defense! It’ll be OK, though. They’ll teach you what you need to know about being a boy. These two. Your whole life, your great big brothers who’ll take care of you & love you & help you know what to do & how to be. They’ll always remind you to laugh & be happy & to bring enthusiasm to the world.
