My Boys are Awesome

I had so much fun creating this layout! At first I was a bit stuck on what papers I wanted to use and how to create the angle I wanted, but suddenly it all came together. Honestly, the ribbon did it for me. As soon as I put it on the layout my creative energy started flowing.

I used a sketch from ScrapMuch? To create this layout, as soon as I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to use it. The angle was just fun! I used lots of scrap papers that I had on hand, and lots of different scrappy goodness from my stash. It was fun to go hunting in my stash for just the right things.

Wooden nickels are so much fun. I pulled these two from different manufacturers. I matted my pictures with a cute yellow paper I had in my scraps. Not no my normal white mats....I love the way they turned out!

This little corner of happy was an afterthought. It just looked kinda empty so I cut a semi circle of one paper and a corner of another and put them in. A few enamel dots, a flair, and suddenly it was a fun little accent corner.

I had these boy stickers in my stash for awhile. I was happy to get a chance to use them. I put my journaling on the little tag, and tied a coarse yellow ribbon on it. A few splashes of yellow Color Shine and some enamel dots really set it all off.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my layout as much as I enjoyed making it. Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
