Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Ours was the usual craziness, but that is always the way when you have 2 kids, right?
I have to admit, I am combining 2 Design Team projects into 1 today. Bad Kristy, but hey, it happens to all of us, right? Right? Jennifer over at Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration designed a great page sketch for us to use - head on over there to see the sketch. And Heather asked us to "make our own stamps" at The Paper Girls Challenge. I thought these would be great combined together!
Here is my page:

As you can see, I was feeling a little sentimental. I never do a page about me, and when I saw this picture, I thought, why not??? Go for it!
Remember I mentioned that The Paper Girls Challenge was to make our own stamps? Well, for me that was my SU Clear Mount stamping blocks. To make the background, I laid out all my ink pads and blocks. I pressed my blocks right into the ink, and then onto the paper. (The new ink pads work GREAT for this, better than the old style.) Oh wait, I have a couple helpers that can show you what I did:
Note to self when I do this again...don't let the kids use your good SU ink pads. I may have some Strawberry Slush on all my ink pads now. But the kids had fun and were so proud of their work - that is the most important thing!!!
