Paperplay challenge from week of July 23th

Week 27 - Boys, boys, boys
"Boys, boys, boys, make something for a boy - baby, child, teen or man"

I have a friend who's Due date is tomorrow, July 25th, so I thought it was fitting to make something for her to have for her son. I did an 8x8 page that she can frame, put in a baby book, or add to a bigger scrapbook page.



The best part is this is all still using scrap leftover from the babybook I made for my other friend. I love getting to use paper pieces all up. It's also how I'm cleaning my work table off. LOL It's been a huge mess for 3 months now!
The "Baby Mine" that I hand wrote is a little smudged. I'll have to go over it again. It's hard not to smudge ink on vellum and more so when you are carrying your project, your laptop (and mine is as big as they come), and an 18 month old how finds the sidewalk too hot for her little bare feet. The "C and "A" are printed on the paper but didn't show up enough for my liking so I traced around them. It helps when a 3 year old doesn't keep knocking the table. (sigh) After doing them the "L" and "Y" looked like they needed to be outlined so they would look more like a set. I love how they turned out.

Paper's are again Deja View's Sharon Ann's Little Ones Boy 12x12 pad
Blues, green, and reds card stock is from my huge stash. I have no way of knowing what brand or color name.
Silver Vellum, "Goo goo gaa gaa", and "Baby Boy" papers are from Hobby Lobby.
"L" and "Y" where die cut on my Sizzix with the Serif Uppercase Alphabet set.
