Nope, Not Halloween

The Story
These are photos of my son Adam back in the late 80s.  My children were very active in the children's program at church.  Adam had no problem being on stage and dressing in costumes.  He is dressed (1) for a world missions program, (2) a program for a world conference, and (3) as Noah in the whale.  He was so much fun to watch on stage.  Then he was not shy he jumped in with great enthusiasm. 

The Layout

What I Learned
  • Instead of placing the banner on top of the page I added it to the bottom.  To my surprise it really brought out the photos much more.
  • I had fun using Graphic 45's Magic of Oz product line.  The different characters have a special place in my heart.  The Wizard of Oz has always been one of my favorite movies. 
  • I've been going through some of my alder albums.  I found that a lot of pre-adhesive chipboard letters have come loose and fallen.  I decided to start adding more adhesive with my Xyron Sticker Maker.

I had mentioned that Wednesdays will be a day dedicated to my cards for the 52 Weeks of Cards.  The challenge doesn't actually start until the 9th, so I will be starting my posts next Wednesday. 

Have a Crafty Day!
