You Color My World

As stated in a previous post, I attended the CTMH Regional Celebration in Arizona in February, and we made several layouts over the course of the weekend. Here is one of them that I finally found pictures for. All the layouts were slightly girly, and, since I have two boys, finding the right pictures to use with them was a challenge, but as soon as I knew I would be helping dye Easter eggs at my son's pre-school, I realized this would be a perfect fit. I even dressed both my boys in green so they would coordinate with the layout - how sad is that?! My favorite part of the layout (besides the pictures of my cute kids) is the title. It combines stamped images and the Hodge Podge Color-Ready Alphabet stickers. On other projects, we colored the stickers, but here they looked best in the original white. A fun technique we used was to emboss a rectangle around the two large picture frames and the journaling block using an embossing stylus and the channel in a paper trimmer. It created a raised border that really adds to the finished look of the layout. All the details made this a fun layout to complete!

Recipe (all CTMH):
Rustic Alphabet, Priceless Love & Connections stamp sets
Daydream patterned papers
Sweet Leaf & White Daisy cardstock
Sweet Leaf & Hollyhock ink
Hodge Podge Color-Ready Alphabet stickers

So how do you usually scrapbook your sons' pictures? I'm curious because I have two girls and one boy, and his album has like two pages in it. I have the stardust pp, and recently I bought tinkerin. I would never have thought to use daydream in a boys album.

Your pages are cute.

I use blue in any shade or combination. I don't think my sons realize they can wear any other color! I've been posting a lot of cards lately, but I'll try to get back to doing some layouts so you can see how I scrap my boys. TFL.
