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 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! 🙂
