I'm so excited to share this LO today! It's time for the art supply challenge at Child's Play Challenges.

Googly Eyes!!!!

And I knew exactly what I wanted to do! (and NO, it isn't a Halloween page)  My younger son made up this game of looking under the door when he was about 3 years old.  All I could think of is PEEKing under the door or PEEK-a-boo, I see you!  (You know, eyes, see, PEEK). Oh, and he still plays this game today!

It's a simple page because it isn't a great photo.  I used Making Memories paint, to do the background colors. I chose green and blue to pick up the colors in both boys pajamas.  I matted the photo on some very old Basic Grey paper.  I only had one set of BoBunny chipboard eyes, so I used some random white buttons and threaded them with black floss to get the same look. A little doodlebug green twine wrapped around the journaling picks up the green again.  I inked the edges and hand drew the stitching to bring the focus in a little.

So I hope you will come check out this week's inspiration over at Child's Play Challenges!

I scraplifted this LO from the Sept/Oct Issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.
