Shopping our Stash #47 - Masculine/Boy

This week I've been diligently using up the last little bits of hoarded paper from a few favourite collections, and digging through drawers to see what other treasures I've forgotten about. And guess what I found? Some perfect boy stuff for the Shopping our Stash challenge for masculine cards! Yay :) It's open until Monday night.

Supplies: papers from Imaginisce;
buttons from Basic Grey & stash;
twine from the Twinery (from Emily!)
Today is Riley's birthday - 12! Where on earth the time went, I don't know. We're heading out to Shubenacadie (about 1.5 hours away) to visit the wildlife park, and eating a lot of fast food by request...so when my stomach hurts tomorrow, I'm pretty sure I'll know what's to blame :) We haven't taken any boy pictures in a while, so with any luck I'll have some to share after our mini-trip.

xoxo,
Jessi
