67 - CSI Challenge - Outnumbered

My idea machine went on strike when I first saw the inspiration photo for this week.   Then I remembered these photos of the twins behaving like little cartoon characters and it all came together quite quickly with the help of Em's sketch..   I hope you will be inspired to play this week.

I blended two older paper ranges, October Afternoon and Kaisercraft with a new one, My Mind's Eye and they all played happily together.

Accent from the picture (the little rub on Robot, on the star)
Fussy cutting (the arrows)
Plain Cardstock

Hand write your journalling (cringe)

You two little boys simply adore being outside with Pa. You also love finding alternative ways of using things.  Like this soccer/totem pole which makes a fine imaginary game of “capture the Adult”, when you tie Pa up in knots. 20 months 25 September 2012
