{my favourite}

Just popping in to post a quick layout this afternoon before I leave for work.

With everything that's been going on lately, I realized that I haven't been scrapbooking very much... but I've missed it. So I decided to make a layout this morning and to keep it simple. I also incorportated this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: ribbon pleating.


I used American Crafts (white) and Papertrey Ink (smokey shadow) cardstock, PTI stamps (Grunge Me), button & dies (alphabet block). The patterned paper is Fancy Pants and the journaling card is Crate Paper. The ribbon is from Walmart.

Here's a close-up of the journaling:



Thanks for looking!

Such a cute layout. It's nice that your two boys are good friends. I was hoping for that, too, when I had two girls--99% of the time, it is true.

Great layout. Love your title. Cute picture f your boys. Hopefully their bond will grow stronger as they get older and become the best of friends.

Oh, how special! I love your scrap page, but I LOVE that your boys are so close. I hope to see more of that develop between my kids as time goes on... My 30 year-old sister is my best friend!

This is great as always, Leigh! You've got me thinking about that alpha die even though I've got my Cricut.

I tend to shy away from scrapbooking but your layouts are so wonderful you make me want to pull out some of my pictures and get to work! I love your clean designs.
