Spunky Baby Boy by Felice Originals

This is a cute contemporary kit for photos of your favorite baby boy. While it has some traditional baby elements (bottle, bib, blocks, etc.) they are done in great contemporary colors of blue, green, white and light orange. There is also a touch of the technical found in assorted gears. When I first saw the gears, I thought, "Oh yes, boys come into the world with the wheels/gears already spinning. Forget snips and snails and that old rhyme. Boys are packages of boundless energy, full of curiosity and spunk." I know my son and grandsons are like that. You can find the kit here:

Going way back in time, here is my son in 1978. This child never took naps; he was always wanting to do something.

Note: I cut the cloud tag from one of the papers and extracted a single diaper pin to attach it to the ribbon.

And here's my oldest grandson, Tyler. He was a baby with a million expressions, just a few shown here when he was less than a year old.

Note: shape cut using a template from Christine Nash.

Speaking of Ty's expressions, I had to scrap this one. To me it says, "Why am I in this cage?"

Note: One of the blocks in kit altered to change letter to "T." And gear altered to create frame.

Have a few Wedding photos to scrap?

If you have just a few wedding photos to scrap - perhaps of a friend or family member - try this kit, Wedded Bliss by Tink's Designs at Southern Comfort Scraps:
http://southerncomfortscraps.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_179&products_id=311
The colors are soft pinks, lavender and mauve. Here are two pages I made with a couple photos from a cousin's wedding to give you an idea how your pages could look.


Here's the bride, Jeanne, before the ceremony:


and the newlyweds lighting the unity candle:

Doing a little scrapping with So Blue

So Blue is by Whispy's D'Zines of Sunflower Scraps Boutique and you can find it here:
http://www.sunflowerscrapsboutique.com/boutique/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_187&products_id=3065&zenid=30aa58e6caf5af1f546d2d91e5547388

This works so well for a treasured photo of grandson Tyler's first Christmas:

I love the way the blue background picks up the blue in his outfit and the silver gives just the right touch of holiday sparkle. The Poser (in kit) is from MediEvil Creations.

Designer, Julie, said she was in a blue mood when she created this kit, so I thought this photo of my God-daughter, Rachel, who is normally bright and bubbly but looks serious here would show how the kit could address a blue mood.


And for fun I created a little tag for Julie, Just Let A Smile Be Your Umbrella:
