This is a scraplift from "Scrapbook Shortcuts Usinng Simple Schemes" by Simple Scrapbooks mag. There were so many cute schems for 8.5 x 11 pages, and I wanted to try some, but all of our family pages are 12 x 12. So I decided to go and scrap some pages for a book for my oldest , Andrew, who turned 9 this June. I thought it was only fair, since my style has evolved so much since I did pages for him 8 years ago! I am finding that I really really love the 8.5 x 11 format...not sure what it is, but rectagles rock!!!
Solid color paper is Stampin up!, patterned paper is DieCutsWithaView and yep...that is a Mrs. Grossman's ivy sticker over Andrew's winkie (that was dh's idea!LOL)
