My little man Brandon was given a juice box when he was 10 months old, he really did not care about the juice he like the straw better. Mugging for the camera even then he made all the funny faces with he straw in his mouth. Such a funny cute little baby of mine.
Here is a video of how I made this fun, grungy, silly baby boy page!
I used the wonderful new Baby Boy Collection from Canvas Home Basics with pair wonderfully with their Ivory, Kraft, and Navy blue cardstock. Add in the Flute tiles, fringe, and ropes in similar colors and you cannot go wrong!!
Here are the Tattered Angels mists, papers, and paints that I used complement the Baby Boy Collection.
I had to add in some fun little bits and bobs from 7 Gypsies to add to the feel of the layout, so some paper tapes and metals to the rescue! How could I resist the little baby carriage charm?!?
To add some more textures and shimmer to the layout I added in some Paper House stickers and Rub-on Transfers. They add just the perfect touch!!
This super cute little "Lovely Footprints" die from Die~Namites dies fits wonderfully with the theme of the layout, cut it up and it adds the perfect touch!! And to hold it all together the amazing Xyron adhesives!! For a more detailed video about how to make "sticky stencils" please see my video HERE.
Here are some close up pictures of the layout some all the wonderful layers and textures.
My son in this picture is now 5 years old, it is never to late to go back and add pictures to baby books. At the time these pictures did not stand out to me, but has his personality grew I look back at moments like these and realize how much these little snippets of his goofiness were really previews of my little man waiting to come out!!
