I've been working through my Sugar Rush paper pack and when I came upon the layout design on Page 31 of the newest Seasonal Expressions catalog, I knew I wanted to use up the remaining scraps and try out the new stamp set too!

Every year I try to get the kids to recreate a photo that I took when they were tiny...back in the day, my son let his sisters give him a smooch!

I call it a Matthew sandwich :)

This year he was having no part of it...he sat for some photos but not an exact match! This version is actually far more entertaining.

I have to admit I haven't really played with the ShinHan markers...I like them...they worked perfectly and the colour match is pretty good too.

  • Sugar Rush Paper Packet (X7215B)
  • Dreamin' Big-Scrapbooking stamp set (D1714)
  • Black Momento Ink (Z899)
