Duct Tape Diapers



Scrapbooking ( for me) is first and foremost about keeping and recording memories. This page is one that I have wanted to complete for quite a while (about 3 years). It is a memory that is very amusing to me now, although at the time, it was so frustrating and annoying! When the twins were 2, they refused to pee in the potty, and I had the hardest time keeping diapers on them. They would go hide, take their diapers off, and pee (I swear, it was just like puppies!). So, we had to wrap a strip of duct tape around their diapers so they couldn't take them off on their own. They still figured it out though- they helped each other- it was so funny when I caught one of them tearing and unwinding the duct tape from her sister's diaper. The girls still HATE clothes (I really thought that they would outgrow that by now, but no, as soon as they get home from school, they strip their clothes off). But at least they are potty trained now!
For this LO, I die cut a diaper with my Cricut and SCAL, and wrapped a strip of duct tape around the top of it and around the chipboard letters, the photo mat, and used tiny strips of it for photo corners. The journaling spot, strip, and buttons are all Jenni Bowlin, and the patterned paper is a piece of "denim" paper from my stash.
Challenges that I am entering are:
Allsorts Challenge: buttons or Lace
Sisterhood Of Crafters: children or babies
YNS Challenges: buttons
Crafty Creations: child's Play

Thanks for looking!
