This one was a challenge for me all around. This is the first time I've scrapped an object, rather than people, so it was hard for me to put elements together. But the challenge is what made it fun!
The title of my page is "Little Shoes". The 'little' part I put on one of the stars I cut out and put the letters of 'shoes' on the other stars.
I used ribbon to border the main photo and glued the same ribbon onto a bigger piece of red ribbon to accent the page. The journaling reads "We found these shoes when Mommy was pregnant with you, and had to get them. They matched your nursery decor and we're just so cute! Your first pair of shoes." Attatching the journaling with red mini-brads.
I then placed two smaller pictures of Kayson on the page when he was wearing them. I only had one picture of him in them!! (I don't know why I didn't get more??)

oh, I don't like mine compared to the other two here!

But it's funny that we had our shoe store story soon after the challenge topic was posted. wish I had thought to take a picture of the shoes all by themselves.

The papers and elements are from Ronna Penner's Express Yourself and the blue frame around the shoes is from Michelle Underwood's Shuggapie kit.

Omg, that's the cutest thing! I LOVE your page! You are crazy to think it's not as good as the others girl. The story behind it is darling too. VERY good! Another tough challenge.

Those are all wonderful! Is it sad that my little one doesn't have one pair of shoes. I better get on the ball and get him some before this fall...

Well mine is sort of lack of shoes... it's more about feet. I hope that's ok.

The background behind it is that DH just recently decided to enlist in the Air Force and I have been a bit nervous about moving. Then, I decided that wherever we go, we'll be ok as long as we're together... thus the motivation for the page! Biggrin

ETA: lol, note how Madelyn is grabbing for the hole in DH's sock! Lol

Here is mine. I didn't want to make another, so here is Ruthie's boots page.

The journaling says-
"Ruthie loved her "boo boos." She wore them everywhere with a smile!"
