Here are two LO’s that I made using Tiff’s Pinstripe Collection. I can’t even tell you how inspired I was by this kit, especially the colors. Both of these stories have been on my “To Scrap” list for a long time.
First up is “Following in Daddy’s Footsteps”. This was a really special story for Jason and I’m so glad I finally scrapped it. The layout design was inspired by this page by Stephanie Howell.
Journaling reads- In 1977, a very young Jason put his footprints in wet cement at a house in West Virginia. In 2009, [Little Man] visited that house, now belonging to his Grandma Z. It was so special for Jason to see his son standing in the same footprints he made as a child.
(And now that I write that, I realize the date is wrong. This happened in 2010).

The second page, “Favorite Shirt”, was inspired by the Impromptu Challenge at Scrapbook Bytes. The directions were to scrap a favorite piece of clothing using colors/ patterns similar to those in the clothes. I immediately thought of my favorite shirt that the Little Man wears. And it just so happens that the colors in the Pinstripe collection go perfectly.
Journaling reads- This is my favorite shirt that [Little Man] wears. I love the color and it looks great in pictures, especially when there is greenery involved.. I make sure to ask his mom to pack it every summer when he comes to visit. I’ll be so sad when he grows out of it! March 2013
