My boys are so full of life, energy and are so much fun!! They are almost to the day 4 years apart, and her they are at ages 8 and 4. They love to play together and be rough and tumble boys through and through.
I used the beautiful Birds of a Feather August kit for this layout. I love this paper, it has such grunge and texture without having to do a thing to it, it already looks like I applied a ton of mixed media to the page. I then layered a ton of items behind the pictures, more papers, cards, fibers, jewels, stickers, cardboard, and more. I even took ones of the cards from the extra papers and cut up the sentiment and layered it along the cardboard section of the paper as my title. This paper just screams BOY GRUNGE!!

I added in a ton of grungy items to this page like torn papers (learn the Art of Paper Tearing here), wires pulled from the trim rolled up and glued, cork date sticker (from the April Kit), photo frames (from the March Kit), metals, rub-ons, burlap fibers (from the July Kit), and more.
Here you can see some of the wonderful jewels, bling stickers, blue trim, and chalkboard cards all layered up behind my picture. I added in my own alpha stickers and roman numeral metals for the boys named and ages.
The colors of the kit go perfectly with the September Off the Rails Challenge Mood Board. Come play along with the challenge today!!
