Stampin' and Startin' Young

I love it when my grandsons want to stamp with me! The first thing Ty asked when he came over today was, "Grandma, can I stamp Dinosaurs?" I said sure! Ty stamped them with Real Red ink and Carter used Wild Wasabi. Did I mention that I love it when my grandsons ask to stamp with me?!? Colby is a little too young to stamp but boy did I like my Grandma time with him too!
