One for the boys with Scrapbook Boutique

Here's the yummy inspiration from Scrapbook Boutique this month:


The brief is to make it "one for the boys".  Here is my latest page, which is for Rohan's album, highlighting his special relationship with his little cousin:


I stuck mainly to my Counterfeit Kit, adding a paper from a 6" pad for the pinwheels, and using a different ribbon which matched better.
I knew I wanted to use that blue paper for background, but was also in love with the little birdies on the other side . . . that's why I ended up trimming it back and mounting it on white cardstock.  The bonus was a perfect home for my journalling around the edges!
(And keep your eyes peeled for those little birdies on a card or two sometime soon!)




Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I love those little pinwheels and the idea about journaling around the edge. I see that a lot and I always forget about it but I think it is a wonderful way to journal. I need to remember that one! Great memories captured here!
