Mommy's Baby Boy

Hello Everybody!!  Leslie here from scrapnlifeaway.blogspot.com and today it is my pleasure to share here at She's A Sassy Lady!!  I am so grateful to be part of the DT, thank you Sheila!!  Well, last month I shared a baby girl page, so it's only fair that this month I share a baby boy page!


My goal, now that my craft space is almost complete, is to use more of what I have on hand!  When I start a page, I like to lay out the papers to see how well they play off of each other!


Then I start cutting things up!  These pages are for an 8x8 album (there is a special story behind the making of this!) so I was limited as to how much I could embellish!  In my humble opinion (lol) I like to mat my pictures on black cardstock because it really can make your photos pop!!  The journaling was printed on plain white printer paper, I just changed up the colors on a few words to make it cute for a baby boy!



I really loved this journal spot!!  If you are making a little girl layout, you can just change the font color to what ever works with the colors in your layout!  And here is the final product:


The title was cut using George on my Cricut at .75 and the flowers were from my stash!  So this layout cost me nothing to make!  Everything I used were materials that I had on hand!  I hope that this project inspires you to create something special!  And if you want to know the story behind this layout, please stop by my blog at scrapnlifeaway.blogspot.com!  Have a great day everybody!!

Very cute layout. I love that you added flowers to a boy's page. I do that also, I don't see anything wrong with it, as long as it's not girly. Since yours matches the layout, that's perfect.
