Its Time to Measure you!

We have a tradition in our family that a couple of times a year - and always around birthdays, we measure the kids against the passage cupboard door. Benji had his 4th birthday last week so it was measuring time! I snapped these cute photos of natalie measuring him. he looks so serious and proud of how much he has grown (he is actually really small for his age).
I used the current CSI challenge criteria for this page. Here they are:

From the evidence list I used distressing and numbers. I cut a number stencil using my Cameo and sprayed through it with white ink to get the background effect. My papers are mainly from the  Teresa Collins 'He Says' collection. If you haven't checked out the new Teresa Collin releases you must - they are to die for! From the testimony I 'framed' my journaling using an envelope and Studio Calico wooden bracket.
I also used a lot of Purple Pumpkin goodies on this page.
The fabric 'bicycle' button is resting on a crocheted doily - both from PP. The cute tickets and washi tape strips are also PP products.
One of my favourite things to add to my pages right now is baker's twine. here I have wrapped it around the Studio Callico wooden camera for added interest. PP has a huge variety of colours of twine to match any project.
Have a great day :)
