"Rough & Tough" is one way to describe my last weekend!

My car is a little worse for the wear (minor fender bender) after our little shopping foray and my feet hurt the entire next day! Who knew it was back to college weekend!? Notre Dame, Saint Mary's, IU, Bethel College and a couple of others, the traffic was horrid. All Matthew wanted to do was go to the Guitar Center, we did manage to pick him up a couple of pair of jeans. Mimi made out with some cute outfits. I'm in love with a skirt she found at a resale store, I see a photo shoot in her near future :)

Back on track here... 

I'm still scrapping my endless supply of kiddo pics and these were in my "I Love" pile. He looks so all boy. Pulled this Mammarazzi paper by Bo Bunny from my stash and went grunge! The photo color is off a little, always at the mercy of the Michigan weather!

The title wasn't standing out enough for me so I sponged on some acrylic paint and outlined it with a Sharpie.

The cardboard is torn from a coffee cup holder.

Inked everything with Distress Ink by Ranger.

There was a little too much white space, the hand drawn lines solved that problem. I'm really in love with the finished layout :}

Off to bed, no rest for the wicked. The baby business is booming. Don't these women know we are in a recession? Just kidding...lovin' those of sweet smelling, soft, snuggly, little bundles of joy :) Have a fabulous Friday!

Gorgeous layout it caught my eye straight away on Two Peas. Love how you have altered the papers and the embellies. You have good reason to be happy with the end result!
