First ball game


Some of you know that Nate's 5th birthday party was also his first time at a baseball game. It was so fun! We have a minor league team here in Rochester—the Red Wings. They are pretty good, but they did lose this particular game. Not that we really noticed, we were all about the experience for Nate.


I love the grainy boy feel to this page. And I finally tried out the Tinted Tapes I got from Vintage Street Market. Oh my, I am in love! In the picture above you can see the Numbers tape really well. It is clear with black lettering and goes on perfectly.


In this photo here, you can see the Linen tape, which I nearly covered my whole layout with. It is also placed at the edges of the photos, too. I think you can see it if you click to enlarge the main photo of the layout.

If you haven't stopped to sneak a peek at Vintage Street Market, I highly recommend it. And join their Facebook page for great giveaways and fabulous conversation.
