Finally Home

Journaling reads:
There once was a little panda that sat on a shelf in the toy store waiting for someone to give him a home. One day a lady walked into the store, looking at all the bears she finally reached out and picked up the little panda. That night the panda met his new owner, a cute brown-eyed boy named Erik. Erik loved his new panda and gave him a very special name, Pirate Blair. The little panda finally had a home.

Supplies used:
cardstock: Bazzill

More Magic Mesh layouts!

This is one of my favorite photos of my son. I think the title says it all!

This is our cat, Callie and our basset, Tucker who actually get along very well together.

This is my grandma when she was a little girl. I wanted my grandparents layouts to be similar in design.

This is my grandpa when he was 3 years old.

Another big thank you goes out to Magic Mesh for all the wonderful products that they sent the Scrappin Mojo design team. We were very excited that they sponsored us for the month of August and we have been busy creating up a storm. Magic Mesh is a simple but awesome way to add texture to your layouts and cards.
