MIM #48 -- attempt #4

I decided to attempt this week's Make it Monday at Papertrey Ink: creating backgrounds with border dies with a layout.

I chose some photos of my favourite boys taken at this past summer's Corn & Apple Festival.

I used American Crafts cardstock (white 12x12) and PTI cardstock (stamper's select white), PTI stamps, buttons (boy basics: simple circles) & dies (simple circles border, alphabet block). The chevron patterned paper is My Mind's Eye and the label where I put the date is Crate.


Thanks for looking!

Great layout! I bought Boy Basics: Circles just so I could add more to my son's baby album pages. I am so glad to see that you were able to use it in a layout. Great idea to use it for MIM! Thanks for the inspiration!

Love the background papers you made with the dies! They are so understated and work so well for scrapbook pages. What a great idea!
