There comes a point in a child’s life when they can finally rip off the bulky, hot diapers and don a nice pair of cotton scivvies. That time has come for my Phoenix. We are (hopefully) nearing the end of potty training, and he is proud to say that he owns some pretty rad underwear. So, being the scrappin’ mom that I am, I had to make a page about it!


It is exactly as I envisioned it… which doesn’t always happen! My background paper is from Adorn It! and I used Prism for my plain cardstock. Cut out the letters with my Diesel QuicKutz font and added some American Crafts ribbon, EK Success stars, and of course, some staples.


I just loved seeing all those little pairs of underwear hanging out on the laundry line… His heiny is so tiny! And he loves all of the characters he gets to wear…even though he doesn’t know who half of them are!


I showed him this page this morning. And he just giggled. He told me it was “cool.” Ain’t he sweet? I wonder if he’ll still think that in 10 years…??? Have an inspiring day!

How funny is this??? Love it! Such a perfect page...if you really want to embarrass him later, you should add a little pic of him in just his scivvies!! lol
I was just showing the Zaniac scivvies at the store yesterday saying that he should learn to use the potty so he could wear some cool superhero underoos!
