Boys Will Be Boys

I can't begin to tell you how lucky we are to have Scrapbookit and the wonderful Jo in the scrapbooking world!

I am the luckiest of the lucky being part of the Scrapbookit Design Team and receiving amazing products each month.

I have just had so much fun working with my kit this month ~ Echo Park - That's My Boy. I love working with Echo Park papers and especially the masculine/boy themed ones.

Today I have another layout to share with you.

 I have layered a variety of papers from the kit and rather than bringing out the navy I decided to use black . I just love the colours and their brightness against the black. 
To lift the patterned papers and to make them stand out I used some matching colour card to create a matt behind the paper.

This photo of the '3 musketeers' I found purely by default one day whilst going through Brayden's iPad. 

My journalling, which can be found on the green piece of paper with the title 'note' says...
"Now I have worked out how significant it is for me to do regular checks of Brayden's iPad, which he takes to school. If I didn't I would never have found this gem! A photo of the little fellas. Apparently it was taken for a project at school. I just love this sums the three of them up perfectly."

Here are a few more close ups...

Just remember that any products seen here are available from Scrapbookit. Head to the online store to browse and shop at your convenience. Even with a coffee in your hand! How good does that sound!

Have you heard that Scrapbookit is having a retreat?
Have you booked your spot to enjoy the fun and laughter?
If not, contact Jo and book your spot now before it is too late!
I know I can't wait until the 24th October!

Now don't forget to get creating with our mood board challenge and link yours in on the blog or email it to Jo ( by the end of the month.
Remember there are no right or wrong answers and that you can use as much or as little as you like but we must see evidence of something.

Looking forward to seeing all your entries...
