Time With Dad

What do you think? Awesome picture of my boys? The taller one is my son and the little munchkin, his son and my wonderful grandson. Wonderful story behind this pic; My son and his baby mama as they say today, are no longer a couple, but somehow they manage to put their differences aside to spend time with the kid. They took this pic at the movies while watching the film "Coraline". This layout was created for the "Magistical Memories August Sketch Challenge"

I created the layout "He Raps" for my son Pierre. He is a local rapper in the Orlando area. I believe my son was born a rapper. My son was born in the mid 80's, approximately 5 years after the first rap song was recorded. You may be familiar with this song by The Sugarhill Gang, "Rapper's Delight", I know it was one of my favorites. I guess it is possible I played that song to death thus creating my own little Hip Hop Rapper. Look at me taking all the credit. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Rapping, it is also referred to as MCing or emceeing, it's a vocal style in which the artist speaks lyrically, in rhyme and verse, generally to an instrumental or synthesized beat. My son spoke in ryhme since the first day he started speaking. Every word that came out of his mouth had a musical beat to it. I always thought it was funny how he elongated everything he said to make it sound musical. One word that always sticks to mind is how instead of saying "Papi" (spanish for dad) he would say "pappiti". It was difficult creating this layout cause it needed a nice urban feel to it which you don't get out of adding the normal embellishemnts like flowers and ribbons. So it tool awhile and this is what I came up with. Thanks for looking.

Nerdy Victorious Challenge #7

Here is my take on the "Nerdy Victorious" Challenge.
The Awesome society of "Envious" at Nerdy Victorious Scrapbookers have a great challenge this month which I have decided to try my luck at. Check them out at http://nvsgirls.blogspot.com/
Just submit a layout inspired by this collage...pretty simple.

This is my very first post. I thought it might be fun to share my layouts with other fellow scrapbookers. Here I sit trying to figure out what can I say that would be of any interest to you and I really can't come up with much. So I decided to ask you a question. I spent about an hour this evening glueing embellishments back onto my layouts. These are layouts that I completed about 5 - 6 months ago. So my question is what adhesive can I use to ensure that this does not happen?

This first layout is a layout I actually completed a couple of months ago but I just wasn't very happy with it. Today I added some rub-ons in the letter areas and also added the purple rub-ons around the tree. I think I'm a little more satisfied with it. Most of the products used are from the Basic Grey Wisteria line.
