Toot Toot...

When I saw this layout Michelle made I started singing the ever popular Popeye song and seriously laughed out loud at how cute this turned out! Check it out :)

I nick-named my son, Popeye after I saw the photos from his 1st Birthday photo shoot. He had his chin stuck out and lips just so...all he needed was a pipe!

Since there was no Popeye themed scrappy supplies available when I started this page. I went online and found a few websites. Copied a few pictures and One listing Popeye's Stats, which was perfect for my journaling. Not sure if you can read them:
Popeye's reads Luke's reads
Age: 34 Age: 13 months
Weight: 156 lbs. Weight: 22 lbs. 15 ounces
Neck: 8" Neck: None
Forearms: 20" Head Circumference: 46 cm
Chest: 30" normal Forearms: Ample
Chest: 60" expanded Chest: Like A Brick
Spinach Capacity: 36 tons Spinach Capacity: So-So
Height: 5'6" Height: 31 inches
Hair: Red Hair: Red
Biceps: 7" Biceps: Building Them Up
Thigh: 20" Thigh: Getting Ready to Walk
Calf: 7" Calf: Mastered Army Crawl At Top Speed

I put down Neck: None under my son's stats, because we joke my husband has no neck and looks like my son is going to build like him. I added/changed a few items to fit my son and since I had measurements from the Dr. visit!
I printed everything out on cardstock paper that I sprayed with Archival Mist. After they dried I printed everything up. I added the Popeye theme song too!
Off set my matting with read and inked up the edges of the images or journaling with red or blue ink.

Hope you smirk at My Popeye curled lip and off-set jaw!
"Cause I eats me spinach.
I'm Popeye the Sailor Man."
