It's been a long time.... Spiderman Birthday Layout

Wow, it has been along time since I last posted. I quit being a Stampin' Up Demonstrator. I still love the quality of their products, but have just been really disappointed in the selection since the whole color renovation. They pretty much rid the line up of almost all of my favorite colors. I tried, I really did give it a worthwhile try, but I just couldn't embrace it. Also, I just got too busy with life. I started volunteering at the kids school more and between a fulltime job, being a wife, and Mom, I just couldn't keep up anymore. In addition, I got into Stampin Up because I wanted to scrapbook and I found myself only making cards. I hadn't scrapped more than a few pages during the entire year. Also, I was very frustrated that I couldn't post pictures of my creations if I used other products and well lets face it, there is a ton of awesome products out there that work great with Stampin Up and I want to use it all.

My New Year's Resolution was to get back to scrapbooking and start using up this product that I had been obsessed with buying including cricut cartridges that were collecting dust.

My son's birthday was in December and he loves Spiderman so I created these 4 pages for him. I struggled finding any layouts to work with this, but thanks to the Spiderman 2012 calendar I was inspired to come up with this.

Products Used:
SU Cardstock: Colors are Brilliant Blue, Real Red, and Daffodil Delight.
Sandylion Spiderman Stickers
I also used SU Inks to sponge the edges and give it a little dimension.
I downloaded a Spiderman Font on my computer and that is how I created the Title.

Simple but it took me nearly 4 hours. Hope you enjoy!
