Getting ready for Cooper Layout by Kandis Smith

My boys love to help daddy. They think they are Mr. Fix it too--even though they do more harm than good most of the time! Landen actually loosened all the bolts on our Kitchen table and I didn't know why it was wobbly for weeks until I saw him go under the table with his plastic wrench. Little monkey! haha They wanted to help daddy build the crib for our new little one--these are some of the pictures I got of them helping.

I put my ABC's in order and lined them up along side my photos. I stitched through the top of them and sanded the bottoms down for a little texture.  I ran some Tim Holtz trim along the other side with a gathered bunch of yellow seam binding. I cut two tags and adhered them to the top of the page and ran it through my sewing machine then I just hand wrote my title on the tags. 


Kirsty's Note -
Absolutely FUN! Thanks Kandis!

  3. Beautiful layout. I'm just crazy about the Pink Paislee School House plaid paper. You've matched it up perfectly with the Giltz Pipework and Webster's Pages Spring Market... love the stitched alphas and tags, too!
