Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!
Today I have a layout for you that I made of my adorable little nephew. I always block out the info and faces but if you could only see this little guy’s face, you would definitely understand the title. He was looking like a little trouble maker with the most adorable little smirk on his face! lol.
This little guy was just 2 years old in these photos, but now he is a Kindergartener!! I am still in shock!! His mommy (really my cousin, not my sister) is the same age as me (hubby and I have NO babies at this point unless you count furry creatures with 4 legs AKA dogs, and secretly I do count them lol!). With a kindergartener! I know she is still shocked sometimes too. Her family is growing so beautifully & I just couldn’t be happier for them. They recently welcomed baby #3!
And before you ask, no there are no buns in the oven here, lol! We’re trying to get the other “adult” stuff out of the way before we grow our family. Jobs, house, finances, etc. Grad school is a royal pain, but it will be SOOOOOOOO worth it when everything finally falls into place & we are in a great place to start a family. I am so excited to start our family soon, but the grad school way just takes a lot longer. 😉
If you have children, did you wait and kind of plan them, were they a surprise, or something else entirely?
I guess you could say we are in the ‘kind of planning for them’ group.
Anyway, enough family talk, let’s get down to business here! The crafty part. . .
This layout was made with the All About a Boy 12×12 papers by Echo Park. Generally I LOVE more girly looking paper, but this All About a Boy collection really spoke to me. I just love the bright, funky fresh style of it. I have used it so much it is almost gone! It has been the perfect collection for making layouts of my cute nephews.
With all the sticker elements, I decided to add an outline around them to make them stand out a bit more. I used my Copic multiliner for this job. I also used it for my journaling.
The brads came from a few various brad packs from My Mind’s Eye and one from October Afternoon.
The Trouble letters are fabric covered Thickers from American Crafts. They have some really adorable stitching on them and I thought they were super cute!
Here are some more photos:
So that’s all for today! I hope you get some crafty time this weekend 🙂 Have a good one!!
