Scrapbooking with flowers, ribbons and all things beautiful -- with BOYS!

If you're like me, a Mother to Boys and a little more then addicted to scrapbooking - the paper, ribbons, flowers, buttons, glitter, you might be wondering how to incorporate all those finds into the perfect layout! I'm here to help! At least, I'll try. I've been scrapbooking for about 8 years and have only recently decided I was done with holding back on all the beautiful embellishments and am going to start using them. Hope you enjoy my journey!

Two finished in one day!!

And here's my second completed Challenge - this one's from Pencil Lines.  I had a lot of fun making my way down memory lane, finally deciding on these photos.  This is Owen, when he was about 18 months old out in California.  He was just so cute all that summer in his little hat!  

This sketch had just 3 photos, and I cropped them to ensure they were all equal in size.  I then crumpled and sanded the Cosmo Cricket paper (Snorkel is the name of this line and it's just so cute!)The chipboard pieces here are all Cosmo Cricket as well.  I found myself wondering if there was too much space above the photos, but decided with a little chalk edging, it's be ok.  All in all, a quick and fun layout!  And there's 3 more photos that won't be laying around in a box anymore!  Yippee!!!

On to the next challenge...I hope you'll follow along on my adventure! 

I hope I've inspired you to get started on your own creation! If not, check out my etsy shop for more inspiration!
