24 @ 24

On July 19th, my little guy turned two.  TWO!!!!!!!   I can't believe it.  I still feel like he is just a baby.  Yes, birthday pages are in the works...

When Charlotte turned 2, I made a list of 24 things that she could do at that age and made a page about it.  You can see it HERE.  So I had to do the same for Kyler:  24 @ 24:

I used the Fancy Pants Memories Captured line.  I fussy cut out all the circles and layered them from large to small down the page.  I clustered the large ones together, but let the smaller ones fall.  

I LOVE the cork pieces that FP came out with.  I just dabbed some black distress stain on these ones and let them dry.  It's awesome that they are self adhesive, too!

My design didn't allow for a lot of journaling space, so I went around the outside.  After each item, I doodled a little star "bullet" and then added a few more doodled stars around the page.  I had meant to machine stitch with black thread around the pattern paper in the center of the page, but forgot, so just faux stitched (can you tell?).  

Stay scrappy my friends!

Cool! Lovely idea with 24 things, and great twist with journaling! My girl is 21, so I'm thinking of lifting your idea =)
Cute circles, so well clustered, and super sweet cork stars!
