Technique Tuesday: Look Out World

Hello there! Almost June! Can't believe it. My kids will be done with school in less than two weeks. I can't wait for the freedom to roam without a schedule. Alas, two of them want to take summer school, so that freedom will end soon. But I'm planning a full schedule of fun for when summer classes are over.

Next year, I'll have one in 11th grade, one in 9th, and one in 4th. Yikes!

My middlest is such a character. He's my one kid with curly hair. If you've seen photos of me (check out my Instagram) or know me, you know that I have straight hair. So I have no idea what's going on with his hair or what to do with his hair. He hates to have his hair cut. But instead of getting longer, it gets puffier, and puffier. And then it gets all lop sided because he hates to brush it. He pushes the brush around just so he can tell me he did his hair. I'm not buying it, but then again, I know to choose my fights. And hair combing, apparently, is not one of them. That's how he ended up leaving the house in a suit and tie to have his 8th grade graduation photos taken with that hair!

We joke that he's harboring little hamsters or baby birds in there, but truth is: girls love that hair. As in, girls looooooove that hair. Not sure that's a good thing for me. But apparently it is for him.

Hair aside, I used a piece of patterned paper that I've been hoarding for a few years now. I loved that Story Teller line from Crate Paper so much. It's time to put it to good use.

All the sentiments are from the Look Out World stamp set. That torn paper die is called Memo Pad Card. The little I *heart* U half-circle is from the The Best Things set and the matching die is from the Hexagon set. I've stamped them using Versafine (black), Colorbox Pigment Ink (red), and Zing embossing powder (gold).

Thanks for coming by! Hope you have a great Monday. xo
