Celebrate {x2} Layout

With two boys, I seldom get to scrapbook girly pages with pink and flowers, so I love doing Mother's Day pages. In 2012, my husband's birthday also fell on Mother's Day, so I had to incorporate the celebration of his special day with Mother's Day. Hopefully this pink, red, green, and blue layout strikes a balance between girly and manly elements!
Tea Time stamp set
Cherry-O Level 2 papers
Chocolate, Crystal Blue, Sweet Leaf & Colonial White cardstock
Chocolate & Blush ink
Chocolate marker
My Crush Best Day Ever Assortment (journaling card)
Felt flower
Mocha Opaques pearl
Sweet Leaf ribbon
Blush ribbon slide
Scalloped border punch (Fiskars)
Heart punch (EK Success)
Cricut Artbooking cartridge: title, book clip, camera, 2
Cricut Artiste cartridge: x, brackets
Pattern: Sketch 'n Scrap 56
Challenges: May 5 Ingredients challenge (color: green apple, cluster, bracket, edge punching + ribbon/ribbon slide inspired by sample layout); Frosted Designs Mom theme + photo inspiration (I added a pink tea cup and a flower to my layout); Clear It Out Challenges Mother's Day + use flowers (it's not a card but it helped me bust out some stash!); Stampin' Royalty create a scrapbook page (how easy is that for me? LOL!)

Love it! I don't think this is too girly, I think it is fun to capture the fact that that year both were celebrated on the same day fun memory! Thanks for joining us at Frosted Designs and Sketch N Scrap!

Oh I so understand! With two boys and a boy pup it is the same in my home - hardly any girly layouts and I do the same with the Mother's Day layouts! Fantastic take on the sketch challenge! Thanks for playing along with us at Sketch N Scrap! :)
