Bold & Boy

    In my last post, I mentioned how much fun it was to make little girl pages. I do have to say though, that a good boy page gives me an incredible amount of satisfaction as well. Sometimes I think boy pages are more difficult to do, hence the pleasure I get for one that turns out well! Here is one of my boy creations recently:

     My oldest had some big decisions to make recently when trying to decide if he should play soccer or football in high school. He loves both and is good at both so it was truly a time where he needed to do some reflection as to where his heart was the most. Ultimately, he chose soccer which, while being a bit of a surprise, made us really proud. It is a perfect sport for him and he loves it now that the season is officially underway! I wanted to capture that moment of some big decision making that he had to do. 

     This American Crafts Amy Tangerine collection was a perfect color palette for my page. I loved the bold colors and the clouds (of course)! It was fun to layer, sew, fussy cut and ink my way to a page I was happy with! Hope that you enjoy it too!

Thank you for stopping by!

It's Summer Baby

     There is just something special about scrapbooking baby girls! Perhaps it is because my favorite color is pink, but I just love to do it! My twin nieces are so fun to photograph and scrap and this layout was no exception. Using the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection really helped to make this layout as sweet and summery as I was hoping it would be!

 And a couple of close-ups to see some of the details. The ribbon didn't come with the collection but I think it is perfect! I love all of the little journaling/title boxes as well as the vellum cloud paper. 

Thanks for looking today!
