Our Baby Boy

I've started doing scrapbook layouts again! I just love how you can combine the elements of stamping with scrapbooking. You just have to think on a larger scale.
This page was inspired by some MME paper that I have had in my stash for awhile. I pulled it out and thought it looked like Baby Boy paper. I just love stripes- don't know why but I am always drawn towards them.
Buttons are the "In" thing this season, and boy do I have a ton of Buttons! I just love the feel of them in my hands. I combined some of my new buttons with some of my vintage buttons I have been collected. I think the combination works out well on this page.
I also dug through my stash of chipboard shapes for this layout. The large circle is from a package I bought at Micheals last year and the smaller tags are from some mini tags that a friend of mine, Sysbie, gave me . Thank you Sysbie!!! I always knew I would find a project to use them on.
The close up pictures are of the page title and some of the embelishments on the pages. The Title combines some MME pre-printed elements with good old Stamping! You know you always have to stamp on your pages. I inked around the edges on everything- it's a great way to bring a page together. The embelishment picture shows a good way to use some of your patterned paper at keep the flow going through your pages. It also gives an area to add journaling and captions to your pages.
Well that's all I've got for today- Hopefully it's warm enough outside to get some work done. Have a great weekend.
