I've been so busy training at the new job, I've hardly had time to scrapbook! But I found a few minutes today, and was anxious to tackle this sketch - midweek mojo 39!
I seem to do so many layouts about my little girl - probably because girl pages are so much more fun - the paper selection is endless, embellishments are so easy to find, and they come together so much more easily than boy pages for me! But, I have lots of cute pictures and memories of my boys that need to be preserved, too! So I'm trying to do as many layouts featuring my boys as I do of my daughter.
I love the embossed background paper - it adds dimension, texture, and interest without having to find a bunch of embellishments!
The papers, title letters, chip board pieces, and journaling block are from KI Memories: Love, Elsie/Cody. The arrow chip board piece is from Fancy Pants Design, and I sprayed it with Chalkboard Glimmer Mist: Decadence color. After I glued down all my pictures, letters, everything, I decided to use my We R Memory Keepers Heart Attack tool to sand & distress the cardstock a little to make those embossed stars really pop... not sure I love the outcome, but it is what it is! :)
I often struggle with boy pages, but I'm happy with how this turned out!
