Clowning around!!

Here is yet another layout that I did for the treasuredscrapbooking We Love Our Members contest. We had to use one photo, distressing, balance, a form of symmetry and something handmade! This is what I came up with.......

I recycled a pair of my Husbands jeans and made a flower...I pulled some strings to make it fringed added a felt flower and sewed on a button! I distressed the photo mat, added a journaling tag and a strip of ribbon that was I believe on my robe that I got for Christmas...recycled there too! I added a thin strip of denim on top of the red ribbon! I used bilateral symmetry for the base lo and then kept it balanced between the journal tag and the flower!
The picture makes my hysterical when I look at kids were being silly one night. My son unwrapped a mini bonbel cheese and didn't like it so I just ate it...I told him not to open anymore unless he was going to eat it. The next thing I know, he has another cheese unwrapped and wanted me to eat way Jose...he wound up eating it and like it...anyway, I come into my bedroom and find them laughing hysterically with these red noses ( the wax from the cheese) and we all lost it....not to mention their chins and my daughter's missing teeth...too funny!!
