B is for boy

B is for boy

Here is the other layout I wanted to share with you this week. My son played tennis two years ago, but I never scrapped them because, well, he didn't really like it all that much. (Even though at the time, it sure looked like he was having fun.) 

Starting from the base, I used Paper Loft paper with small brown stars on it. Then I took my stamp that looks like sewing and stamped various lengths of lines horizontally and vertically. Making sure to also vary the width in between each line.

Then I cut two four inch circles out of brown patterned paper and using my Fiskars®
circle punch, I made two doily look alikes.

I took two cards out of a deck that is missing a few other cards and colored them with my light brown inks.

I made a file folder with my Making Memories Slice Machine®, added two stickers to it. "My Favorite" and the tennis racks, and I drew thin brown frames around them with my Martha Stewart® pen.

The chicken wire is by Dusty Attic®, I cut just a strip of it and framed the words "is for boy" with one of the spaces. 

The green strip of paper is out of my scrap bin, which had colors I needed for the layout, I just inked the edges with brown ink.

The white and brown star is made with the Slice® machine, then I added a white penned outline. 

All the stickers are from Echo Park Paper Co.®, from the This & That line. I just love this sheet of stickers. They are awesome. I used them all over. 

The circle embellishment is also a sticker on pop dots, that I added a metal embellishment to that has been in my collection of hoarded stuff for a long while.

The "B is for boy" is a sticker that I cut in half and inked the edge of.

I really like way this layout turned out. And it kind of all fell together with the stickers and the pictures that I hadn't used yet.

This week has been super rainy here in NY. I hate to be inside this much without being able to take my daily walk outside, but it's great scrapping weather.

How is your summer so far? 

Thank you for visiting my blog!

Have a great weekend.
