Fan Flash Friday!

Happy Friday!

Today, I wanted to show you the other 2 layouts I finished the other day!  I haven’t been in my craft room since I made these layouts- because, our family has been hit by a nasty cold.  We are finally getting over it seems- so, I hope to get into my craft room today!

I had several pictures of my son playing and wrestling with our pups- He loves them like crazy and they love him.  Since, we’ve had them since they were tiny- they have gotten used to Jaxen and his rough and tumble behavior.  I have never seen dogs so patient and sweet with a young boy in my life.

I sometimes struggle finding paper that works well with boy layouts- that aren’t too babyish.  But, lately several paper companies have really come through on the ‘boy’ themes.  The paper above is by one of my new favorites: Crate Paper Toy Box  I love this collection- if you have a boy–it’s a MUST HAVE.  The stars and Best Buddies title is from My Mind’s Eye Lime Twist collection.  I added journaling along the graph paper lines, underneath the Best Buddies title.

For this next layout, I tried something a little different- by cutting strips of different patterned paper in different widths, and then adhering them down in a staggered pattern.  I wasn’t sure at first, if I’d like it–but, now looking at it—I love it.  I think it really brings focus to the pictures.

The patterned paper is from Bo Bunny and Crate Paper Toy Box collection. I loved that the Crate Paper collection included that camouflage pattern, that matched my little guy’s hat perfectly!

The Smile starburst is from My Mind’s Eye Lime Twist (still working thru my 50% off finds!)  I wanted to add journaling- so I made a quick tag and slipped it behind the man picture- I love being able to do this on my layouts- because I feel like I can give my kids a ‘secret’ message that they will hopefully treasure one day. 🙂

Alright- like the title of this post suggests- it is Fan Flash Friday over on the Pink by Design Facebook page! So, go upload your projects- and be entered to win a Cricut Water Bottle! 🙂
