So in my family there are SIX girls and one boy - my poor father didn't get his boy until 6 years ago!!! I have 3 boys and one sister has 2 boys and one sister has 1 boy AND she just found out she is going to have ANOTHER BOY! So my parents will be the grandparents of SEVEN BOYS! WOW!!!! One of these days one of us will break the trend and have a GIRL but for now BOYS RULE in our family!! LOL! They now officially outnumber our original Six pack of girls!!! And when you add in all the brothers in law we are now the MINORITY in the family!! LOL!! Totally different but it is a BLAST! BOYS are so much fun!!!!
NOW onto the SCRAPPINESS!!!!!!
Okay so PAPER first!! LOL!! As you know I design for 3ScrappyBoys. I just love my paper kits!!!! And Heather has the best ones!! Here is a layout I did using February's kit! Yes it was a while ago but I have some scraps left! This kit was just perfect for a few wedding photos I printed out! I also used my CRICUT for this one! Gotta love it!! The large black scalloped paper was cut using the Mini-Monograms cartridge!
You can go here to see my online gallery!!
NOW there is LOTS to share in the digi world! Sara, Mel, Stacey, and Vicki have been SUPER busy at Scrap That Idea! So many great kits!!!! Here are some layouts I have created using their kits!! Some of these kits are in the store and some are freebies found on their blogs!!
First up is a kit called Suede from Mel! I always find the girly kits hard to work with but this one just came together so beautifully! I think this is one of my favorite layouts to date!
Next Mel put together a kit called Bath Time! Perfect for all your fun bath pictures!!! Now I don't have many of those so I went a different route and just did pics of my youngest out in the dirt!!
Sara is up next! She has put together a cute kit called Ladybug! It's adorable!! Granted I have no girls so I am getting really good at using girly stuff on boy pages!! LOL!! Hopefully my boys forgive me when they are older! HA! THis is my oldest being silly with Mr. Potato Head's mustache of all things!
Now onto Stacey! She has 3 fantastic kits out now!! First up is one called 2 Little Bots. It's adorable! You can get this FREE from her blog.
The next 2 kits are called Lil' Prince and Lil' Princess! You can buy these kits together or seperately. Here is a layout from me using each of these kits! I think you'll be able to tell which is which! LOL!
Last but not least is VICKI! She has a few new kits up as well!! The first is called Puppy Love! This kit is adorable!! I really enjoyed putting this layout together!
