100% Boy

Hi guys!

Back to traditional scrapping today.  I love this picture.  When I look at it I see those bright blue eyes.

Ol' blue eyes.

Ol’ blue eyes.

When I was in KS Terri had out her Cricut machine.  I had some shiny new paper.  I thought I might as well take advantage of the machine being accessible.  I had her cut me out the name “Matthew” since I was working on his album  I brought them home with me and today I used it on my page.

I used a piece of really thin background paper.  It had a wee snail on it.  I knew that I had a piece of cardstock that I had 3 critters on it just waiting to be fussy cut.  I had been holding on to these three critters for years (I have all boys and I knew that eventually they would be used – I didn’t realize that it would be with a grandson).  One of the critters was a snail.  First I cut him out.  I attached the picture to the paper and then adhered the snail.  I then put on the shiny blue letters for my grandson’s name.  I fussy cut the remaining two bugs and adhered them.  Last but not least I added a sticker that says “100% Boy”.

The layout is done and boy do I love it.  I have also reminded myself that I do not like fussy cutting.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!

  1. That is a great picture of Matthew. I like the color combination of the bright blue in his name and the yellow shirt. The bug stickers is a good choice for a little boy.

  2. Blue sky for Matthews eyes and the sun for his yellow shirt. Sweet. Little boys and bugs belong together. That is if it is not a spider. Snakes, snails and puppy dog tails.
