Boys Will Be Boys...

Wow where has that last week gone? Time flies when your having fun doesnt it? Hope you are enjoying the sunny weather we have been having these past few weeks. I know I am.

Anyway as its a Saturday, it is the launch of another Scrap Map challenge, this time it is Sarah W's challenge with the theme of Boys will be boys.

If Im honest I have found this LO quite difficult, more from the point of not having many boys photo's, I have Poppy and even my cat is a girl so this was one LO I knew would be hard for me.

So after rummaging through my humungous stack of photo's - believe me it is getting bigger and not smaller! I found some pictures of Father's day in 2009 when we took my dad to the Severn Valley on a 1940's weekend. So these were the pictures I have used.


 I have used Mica Mists on the bazzill to create the background cardstock, after waiting a whole day for it to dry and attempt to flatten the cardstock down, I could then finish the rest. I then used my sewing machine to create the big circles and the Echo Park Little Boy collection pack for the rest. (All available from CCW)
