Over at Scrap the boys, the challenge this month was made for me. Only days before this little man had asked me to do a page for him about his name. So when I read the new challenge for the month was to design a page about a boys nickname.. I laughed and thought - how perfect!!
This is what I came up with... Complete with a hidden journal pocket envelope from "Old Favourites" that contains the origin of his nickname - Jinx
Not that he is a Jinx at all - its just his name!! He has had the name since he was born and it has just stuck. He even wants his name to be changed to Jinx... I'm not that cruel.
I have used OA papers, shipping tags, BG stickers and cardstock, Old favourites envelope and twine, Pretty Little Studio journal ticket, masking tape, tim holtz ink, playing card and paper pattern...
And..... check out my funky flower I made!! I think it looks pretty cute!!
Thanks for coming for a visit... leave a comment, it always makes my day!!
