It's Mine

My oldest had me work on a couple Army Sleeping Bags for him. After I was finished, Miss Izzy did her usual "you made that for me" and climbed into them.  It doesn't seem to matter what I make she thinks it is for her.

From the Counterfeit Kit I chose the large pink and white paper then added the Doily to help tone it down a little and give me a base for a starting point.  Sometimes the large pattern papers can be a bit overwhelming when trying to use them. I cut a 1/4" off each side and used a piece of Kraft cardstock for the back.

I did pull out a sheet of army camouflage paper to make my Polaroid frames with the Silhouette.  I just had to use that to go with the sleeping bag.  The rest of the papers are from my scrap pile. The butterflies are again pre cut and I just hand cut the flags at the bottom of the page
I did ink the edges of the papers.  I also used a snowflake cut from the Cricut that was left over from another project. A few pearls, embroidery floss and the "love" rhinestones to finish it off.

My journaling reads: After finishing the sleeping bags, Izzy once again claimed them for herself. She really didn't even want to look at me at I was trying to take a picture of her after she climbed in. I have it on a tag tucked behind.

An irresistible moment to scrap! You've done a great bright page, and the camo polaroids was a genius touch.

Kate - I was altering a couple of them for him. I turned the blanket they are given into sleeping bags or he can keep them separate.
