This is what happens when you create a masculine layout with girl supplies

     Hi Scrappy Friends!  I'm back with something a bit different for my blog...a 9x12 layout.  I saw this on Inkie Quill's channel and figured I've give it a try for some variety.  I really ended up loving it.  For single 4x6 photos it was so much easier to not have as much white space to fill, and I think the layout looks more balanced.  It won't be something I completely change to, but I will definitely be incorporating some into my albums.  
     The other thing that's different about this layout, at least for my blog is that the photo is my boy, but the supplies are meant for a girl.  I used the Felicity Jane Caroline kit from April as the colors were perfect for the photo.  
     To make this more masculine I pulled in the blue/navy and grey elements to balance out the pink.  For me yellow is gender neutral so that worked week also.  I then pulled in some wood elements for another masculine touch.  Some mustard and seafoam Heidi Swapp Color Shine and I called it a day.
     I also wanted to share with you the glue I used to attach my wood elements...The Best Glue Ever.  I used my Embellie Gellie to pick them up, but look at how little glue I had to use.
     I also will be entering this layout into the challenge at Scrap The Boys.

  2. I like it. A lot!!! You did very good Lynn <3 And - like the son of my colleague is always explaining to me: colors (and in this case paper designs) don't belong to anybody. If I like pink, I can wear pink! (he is a genius at only age 10)
