Scrap the Boys February Challenge

Back for another February challenge share. Today I am sharing my take on the Scrap the Boys challenge, which is to scrap your boys/men and something new.


I decided to scrap my boy and his first day of high school - a new school and a new phase in his life too. I also decided to use my new Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart collection, challenging myself to use it for a boy page, and it was no trouble at all! Here is what I created:

There were lots of lovely blue tones in this paper collection and they worked perfectly with my photo and Liam's blue shirt. I love the watercolour paper, it is just divine, I am starting to think I may end up needing more of this collection!

I used some of the chipboard and phrase stickers from the collection also, teamed with some Rainbow Splendour goodies here.

And my new favourites in the Charms Creations store, light denim, in this case with blue, teamed perfectly with this page. Add in a cool arrow from Rainbow Splendour and a few other bits and we have a great embellishment cluster.

And in the spirit of trying to use up things that I have, here is an old frame from a Crate Paper collection (I think...), a great way to frame the writing on the photo.

Thanks for stopping by,
