March is birthday month for my family. This month we celebrate my son’s, nephew’s, grandpa’s and mom’s birthdays. This month is something extra special, we celebrate my son’s 16th birthday, so what other way to create memories than to document them? This last year he got his very first checking account, definitely a growth milestone! I had to document that.
I am not a 12×12 scrapbooker. When the economy fell and scrapbook stores closed I stopped scrapbooking, but planning has brought light back into the scrapbook world.
Here I used my Happy Planner™️ to create a layout using my Gossamer Blue Main Kit. I just loved the solid blue cardstock that came with the kit and the watercolor paper; to create the background I cut out the watercolor brush strokes and created “die cuts” and glued them on the cardstock. And the foam letters add such soft texture to the layout.
Sometimes making boy layouts with girlie styles can be difficult but as you can see I didn’t let that affect me, and guess what, small amounts of pinks and yellows didn’t take away from the boy layout.
Another thing I am getting addicted to are these epoxys, using them in the corners of the photos or shapes can create a wall art look.
Hope you guys enjoyed my layout, remember it’s okay to add pinks to boy layouts in small amounts and cut apart those 12×12 backgrounds, you can make really cool die cuts!!!
