another year older

Hello and Hi!! Hope everyone is doing well!! I have a layout for you all today!! Another one of my boys! What can I say...they are my life, lol. Here is my page:

This layout is based on sketch #165 at Creative Scrappers:

and the current challenge at ColorCombosGalore:

Here are a few closeups:

This one was a lot of fun to make!! Those pictures are from annual pictures last year. We take pictures every year right around their birthdays. I really didn't use very much of the vanilla color, just what was on the embellishments and torn paper. I hand stitched the ric rac onto the banners and the paper at once. Lemme tell ya, that wasn't easy, lol. I dripped acrylic paint to achieve the designer's challenge, but I didn't do a whole lot. I didn't want it to overtake my layout. I really love my end result, and hope you do too!!

For this layout, I used:
  • Colorbok cardstock (black)
  • CDWV SafariKids cardstock (creamsicle)
  • Cardstock: unknown (cool blue)
  • The Paper Studio Paper: Enchanted Light Blue (ice blue)
  • AVD Vibrant Paper (creamsicle)
  • MME Twinkle Twinkle Little Boys (ice blue)
  • Magic Scraps: vellum words
  • Acrylic paint
  • GEMSTONES by The Paper Studio
  • SpareParts by The Paper Studio: brads
  • Affinity by The Paper Studio: Cardstock stickers (creamsicle)
  • Crate Paper Border stickers (filmstrip and numbers)
  • May Arts Black Ric Rac
  • Bag O Buttons by The Paper Studio: buttons
Hope everyone enjoys and has an amazing day!

Much Love,


  1. Jenny, this is adorable! I love the banners w/ the ric rac ... and the bits of black really make this pop! Great job! Thanks for the kind comment on my CCG #200 LO also ...

  2. This was such a super cool boys page, the banner were great and colours well you nailed them and not many people know how to achieve that. And I didn't realise you used a sketch, you did a great job on that as well. So glad you are playing along at CCG.


Thank you for stopping by!
