Scrap The Boys...

Happy hump day...lol

I found this great blog called Scrap The Boys, if you haven't found it yet you should go and check it out especially if you have little boys. Genarally I find myself scrapping so many pages of my daughter my little man seems to get left out. I have scrapped a few pages of him lately and have really enjoyed playing with more boyish colours, so when I found Scrap The Boys I couldn't resist but to play along.

The challenge for April is to get inspired by an outfit that your son or husband wears to create a layout. You needed to use the photo of the outfit (obviously being worn by your son or hubby) and the inspiration could be the colours, patterns, textures etc...

Well I chose to use the colour of his clothes as the inspiration behind my page. So the colours are orange, green, brown (on the inner edge of his colar) & creamy colour of the tabs on his shorts.

Here is my interpretation...

Scrap The Boys April Challenge

As I already had some leftovers of Bo Bunny Timepiece on my desk I chose to use them up as the colours would work perfectly for this challenge. I also used various shades of green and cream with the one bright orange flower and hints of orange on the butterflies to balance it out.

And some close ups...





To create my page I have used Bo Bunny Timepiece, Bo Bunny Gabrielle butterflies, Kaisercraft paper blooms and rub ons, Jenny Bowlin Alphas, Basic Grey alphas, Bo Bunny Jewels, Dusty Attic Chippy Doilies (available from Scrapping Outback), Prima Exotic Gardenias, paint & Kindy Glitz.
Thanks for stopping by
