About a Boy May 1st Challenge Boys Will Be Boys

It's time for the May 1st challenge reveal at About a Boy! This time is creating a layout that depicts your boy being a typical boy. I was lucky enough to have my youngest do just that and capture it on camera.

In Florida we have lovebugs. These firefly size insects swarm about twice a year here. Really messy to the car windshields and acidic so they eat car paint. However to an almost three year old they are fantastic! Easy to chase and catch and SQUASH! He has such a blast when it is lovebug season.

I used Kaisercraft 75 cents collection that I just adore! I will most defiantly be restocking this collection in my stash. The colors are perfect for boys with a mixed media look. I masked the background flowers and painted with Lindy's mists. I had a cute die cut that I divided and also painted with Lindy's. I used Prima chalk inks to add depth to the edges of the papers.I also used the white chalk ink through a tiny circles mask on the background. A couple of fussy cut butterflies and pleated paper ribbons and my layout is complete!


I really hope you play along with us at About a boy! There are prizes to be won. I can't wait to see your creations!

  1. Who would have thought to make a scrapbook page out of a photo of a hand and a squashed ant? This is just awesome. Love all the little details, and stamped butterflies. The embellishments are gorgeous.
