February Challenge

Tough Guy Winking at Your Mom by Joni

Design Team Member Joni said she wanted to cleanly scrap this photo of her son since it was pretty small.
He was on the baseball field, he knew she had the camera that day and he was "winking" at her....what the heck was he doing?

She used only 1 small strip of patterned paper to add some color.
She used 10 words (not counting her journaling) -- "Tough Guy", "Winking at Your Mom", "So Cool" and "Oh Boy", she used 10 rub-ons around the title and 10 mosiac tiles under the photo. She likes to think the whole title is "Tough Guy....Winking at Your Mom .... So Cool".

She said it was funny, when she explained the challenge to her son (he's 6 and in Kindergarten), he went around and counted everything she said to be sure that she"had it right". Yep, he's 6 going on 10!!!

Time is runnig out - please get your challenge in so we can post it before the end of the month. See all the details in February Challenge below.
