About a Boy: Boys Will Be Boys Challenge

The first challenge for May over at About A Boy Scrapbook Challenges, was to create a layout featuring your boy being a boy.
I had some fun photos of Jack tree climbing and the fabulous Awesome line from Simple Stories to create this layout.

A Whole Lot of Bling

I had some beautiful papers from Glitz Designs Hello Friend collection that were just perfect for some photos I took of Hannah in the wetlands during her class field trip.
I used the second sketch for May at Paper Secrets for inspiration with a single photo, fun pennant banner pieces, and lots of bling!

I changed my up a little with fewer bigger banners and switched the sides so that I could make my butterflies fly into and over my photos.

Some Fun Papers from Across the Pond

I am such a paper hoarder you would think I would have ventured beyond the borders of the United States before to look at papers, but I had not!
It wasn't until I discovered these fun papers over at C'est Magnifique did I even know the name Inkido, a company from Sweden! Their pretty rose papers were just perfect for fussy cutting with a soft and delicate design.
I used C'est Magnifique's May Sketch for inspiration.
And Scrap Our Stash's Patterned Paper Party Challenge using 3+ papers from 3+ Collections.
In addition to Inkido's Paper, I used Teresa Collins Fabrications, and Glitz Designs Hello Friend.
