Scrap the boys - AUGUST challenge

Hi all,

Honestly.... I rarely do this SCRAP THE BOYS challenge blog, for the simple reason that I have 3 girls and its not often I have a photo with JUST boys!

I was determined to give it a go this month though... And ended up doing TWO pages!

August Challenge:
Monochromatic layout (one colour), twine and chipboard

Here was my first layout:
RED + twine + chipboard title.
Papers: Prima, Cosmo Cricket, Crate and other scraps from my "reds" bag
Letters: Old Buzz&Bloom chipboard, October afternoon, Bo bunny
staples (black ones I found at Typo), twine, buttons, brads, washi etc, etc.

Then I wondered whether "JIM" was technically a "BOY" or not and maybe it wouldn't qualify...

Then, I found this cool photo of my good friend Kath's boys and decided I had to scrap it. Here it is:

BLUES + Twine (knotted, and I created the circle of twine too) + Chipboard (word, circles, speech bubble)
Papers: Carolee creations, Teresa Collins
Fancy pants letter stickers, Teresa Collins diecuts & stickers, vellum envelope and bow from D'Lish scraps, buttons, sequins, Lilybee sticker word, paper rose.

So I did it!
Thanks for looking,

I love these to bits!! I love your little details and the way you use layering and colour in your work! Great photos - Not a Jim drinker, but I didn't mind a bit of Bundy rum now and then ;0)
