Greatest Adventure Layout

I absolutely love Susan Stringfellow's sketches (possibly even more than I love my own), and have been looking for a way to use one. So jazzed by the way this layout using her Sketch 116 turned out! I followed her basic plan and kept adding fun embellishments until it looked done. And yes, I was able to use pink on a boy layout and I don't think it's too girly. What do you think?

What a wonderful everyday moment to scrap. I love the colours you chose - and I agree that there's always a place for a bit of pink on a layout, even for boys!

Who would have thought you could use pink for a guy! This is a great LO, pink and all! TFS

You are very brave using pink on a boy layout. And it's not looking girly at all. I think I should try it on my own page too. Thank you for sharing it with us at Child's Play Challenges.
