Boy #2 has a friend that he's known since he was 2 1/2 years old. His mom and I are also besties...works out quite nicely I'd say. They are so funny and have such a good time when they are together and I wanted to make sure to capture that feeling on my layout so I chose pictures of them at their finest - adventuring up a tree and giggling at an ice cream parlor. I love the masculine feel of this layout including the cool chipboard man.
I wanted to incorporate the chipboard man figure from a
Maya Road mini
album but it was too stark as plain chipboard.
I added the Hero Arts Watch Gears stamp and rotated the stamp so that
one of the hearts was in the right location.
I then added the red Distress Stickles to that heart so it would stand
out. I also added “the blessing of” and
“friends” stamps to the Shabby Chic tag to create a custom embellishment that
matched the theme of my layout.
