Sam And His Baby Jail

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I made a couple of quick and easy  scrapbook pages using my handy dandy Rubbernecker Stamps. Once again I am lacking some photography skills here.

This is my ever so sweet nephew Sam,who is having his first birthday party Saturday the 28th.   These are for his first Scrapbook with a Journal Memories~16430  box up in the corner all ready for Mom and Dad to Journal.

I colored up this sweet Baby Bottle~16507  with my Prisma Pencils. I stamped it a second time on scrap cardstock and colored just the bow and popped it up the pop dots for added dimension. I seem to be on a Stickles kick again so I  just had to add some Stardust Stickles to the polka dots.  It doesn't show up very well in the photo but it is a sparklicous bow!

I just love this picture and knew I wanted to keep the page super simple.

I once again used Prisma Pencils to color this super sweet Animals in Window~16748  and added stickles to the dots.

 No matter how hard I try I cannot get a good picture of the letters I stamped from Alphabet Set # 1~15625! The lighting in my craft room is terrible at night!!!  It is on light blue paper and stamped with Summer Sky and then gone over with Waterfall Stickles. In real life the letters are quite blue and sparkly and the paper is a pretty baby blue.  
Thanks for stopping by! Your comments are so appreciated!!! Have a fabulous weekend!!
