Super man?

Inspired by the song Superman (it’s not easy) by Five for Fighting.

This one is for Alex’s album, but has one of the same photos as “Fall Attitude” in Madison’s album.

The morning started w/me trying to get Alex to change his shirt before school, but he really wanted to wear this shirt. It was Madison’s first day of Kindergarten at the “big kid” school and she was soooo excited…until we got there. Then she was just terrified. I had Alex, Madison, Matthew and Christian who was just 2 months old with me and I was trying to figure out how to escort her in w/all of them when Alex asked me if he could please take her. I was so relieved! He was our hero that day. Later I was thinking how appropriate that shirt was after all. 🙂

That same day, he had show and tell at school and he took his stuffed animal (Yoshi) to school, so I got a couple of pics of him at the bus stop.

This layout is for a challenge at Back Porch Memories to use a song title. The song Superman (it’s not easy) by Five for Fighting immediately came to mind not just because of his shirt, but also because the lyrics say “it’s not easy to be me” and that he’s only a man, etc. Alex is a fantastic older brother so it’s easy to forget that he’s only 9 and still vulnerable himself. It’s also based on a sketch provided by sketchabilities for a challenge on Sketches in Thyme.

I used Webster’s Page Wonderfall on this lo, along with some of their trim and sparklers. Prima pearls, Tattered Angels Shimmer mist, Maya Road chipboard butterfly.

You’ve Inspired Me Card

inside the card:

For this card, I used Webster’s Pages’ Nature’s Storybook Papers, Bloomers and Storytellers alphas. The butterflies were cutout from the papers. I handmade the trinket pins using an eyepin and beads and a headpin and beads. The “crystal” bead dangling on the chain is a Maya Road Chandelier bead. The pearls are by Kaiser and the flourish bling is by Prima, but I trimmed and altered it slightly.

I entered this card in the Create challenge by Scrapbook Trends, Cards and Simply Handmade Magazines. All you need to do to enter is create a card decorated w/a butterfly and email your entry. For full details or to enter, CLICK HERE.
