Who's in charge around here, anyway?

MDS blog hop week 4 was all about the boys!  So I decided to scrap my boys and their friend building a tree house about 4 years ago. Fun stuff! I love they way these turned out :)

These pictures NEEDED some explaining so I incorporated the title and the text into a conversation.
After trying several background colors I landed on gray it's just such a great neutral and I really need to use it more!

Here's what I used:
Stamps: Timeless Portrait (tree) & Vintage Overlays (dark splotchy background)
Embellishments: Downtown Grunge Template (frames & stitching) This is a MUST have kit!
Paper: Basic Gray Background & Pocket full of Posies DSP
Font: PR8 Charade

There several out this week for the Blog Hop but here's the link to all the ladies. 
Check out what they have going on, even if it's not MDS, I'm sure it's awesome :)

Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear what you think about the layout.

Too funny - we both used the tree and those grungetown bars! They must have screamed the most boy! I love what you did with staggering the 2 3x bars at the bottom - I'm totally going to have to do that on a layout soon!
