Well, I figured out why I am so behind on Noah's book. It's really hard to scrap boys. Little boys aren't as bad, but there are not a whole lot of embellishments for older boys. And I may be able to get away with a flower or two on Kevin's pages, but it ain't gonna fly with Noah. I've completed a few layouts. more of those are to come. The Wiffle Ball layout is on Cosmo Cricket paper and the green pleated paper is Basic Grey. I think it is the least expensive layout I've ever made in my life. The CC and BG papers I bought on clearance for a quarter each. The cardstock I used for matting and title was 6/96 cents at JoAnns, and the little pebbles were on clearance at Target for 75 cents. I have a couple metal K& Co elements that I was given long ago . It's simple and inexpensive, but I think it really works in this layout. I love this layout. the paper is also Cosmo Cricket and Basic Grey as well. I got the trim on clearance at JoAnns. I used some faux Say it in pearls and some American Crafts stickers and Thickers.
