My boy sailboat layout made using B is for Boy and Nate's ABC's

Hello, everyone!

Today I have a layout that I have made for my little one. It was completely inspired by the sailboat paper that I used. Joy and I had gone shopping at a local scrapbook store(go figure). I had actually gone with her as moral support, but ended up spending way more money than she did. That is the kind of friend I am ;-) Anyway, when I spotted the paper it was love at first sight! I remembered that B is for Boy had a cute sailboat that would work perfectly. The layout itself came from a sketch in one of the Close To My Heart books called 'Magic'. I have to tell you, if you are ever stumped for ideas pick up one of these books. They are chocked full of great sketches! Thanks, Joy, for letting me borrow it!

The paper is from Echo Park.
I cut 'my' out using Nate' ABC's at 3/4". 'BOY' is cut from B is for Boy out at 3/4".
The sail boat is from B is for Boy and is cut out at 2"
Ribbon and buttons are from Papertrey Ink.
I have a Valentine post everyday this week, so stop on over to my other blog to check it out by clicking here ==> Courtney Lane Designs

Have a terrific Tuesday!!



Be sure and check out Joy's and Melanie's personal blogs for more creative goodness at Obsessed with Scrapbooking and Courtney Lane Designs! Have a great day!

I like this even though I don't have kids/grands. BUT, by switching out the "boy" to "guy", this becomes a nice masculine layout for my honey who loves sailing.
