Boys playing ...

September is the month for the boys here at my2angels and the Design Team have some fantastic and creative ideas for boys layouts to share with you

First up is from Wendy ...

This is back at the beginning of the football season, it is my 2 boys and our under 14’s managers little boy ‘helping’ out with the goal posts after a practice match! And luckily for me I just happened to have my camera handy and grabbed this cool photo!!

I have used white core’dinations cardstock with some Sassafras Lass and October Afternoon papers in bluey greens to match our team colours. I have also used a piece of corrugated card (from a box some wine came in!!) and inked the edges to also match the team colours.

On the photo I have used a my2angels bling circles and my title/journaling comprises of Thickers Daiquiri, Jenni Bowlin mini circle letters, a my2angel love charm (sanded back to silver colour) and Sassafras Glitter alphas.

The ‘Go Team Go’ , ‘play hard’, ‘spirit’ and ‘skill’ are SRM Stickers, ‘Reinforcement s Team’ which I stuck onto card and hand or die cut around so that I could 3d some of them. The gorgeous silver camera is a my2angels charm and I’ve added a few aqua pearls to finish off.

and from me because I couldn't resist using the new Prima Road Trip Twists & Turns pattern paper which I cut up in various parts as I didn't want the plane or the duck in the layout and totally love the printed woodgrain effect on the reverse side.

For the Scrapware Chipboard Birdhouse Corner I inked it with Tim Holtz Peeled Paint and while the ink was still wet I covered in Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint so it gave the green tone.

The birdhouse was removed to make way for the clipart boy to sit on the swing I made.

Lots of SEI Park Buddies Buttons (which are currently on sale)

Owl Charm

Mushroom Charms

Made with a Smile Sun Charm

and the flying bird charm.

For the title in the clouds I used Carolees Creations Tiny Etched Natural Alphas

Just diversing from the boys for a moment ...

I am in the middle of a layout using this BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL Prima Annalee Ashton pattern paper which I will share in a few days

such a pretty soft coloured pattern paper with rose blossoms - just gorgeous!

See ya soon
