Boy Oh Boy Layouts

A change of pace for me is to scrapbook boy layouts.  Luckily I have a cutie patootie grand nephew and some fun photos of him from an October visit.  It was so sweet to be able to spend time with him and my niece - it's a bummer to live so far away.  That's another thing to love about scrapbooking - it helps me remember all the fun times we have when we are able to get together and relive them by looking at the photos and reading the stories in my scrapbooks.  On the Playtime 1-2-3 layout, I used a few leftovers from my Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety kit, red cardstock, and a polka dot background page from DCWV.  The numbers are cut from Birthday Bash. 
I really love how this second layout turned out.  To me it's "classic boy" with the blues and browns color scheme.  These papers are from a DCWV stack.  The felt stars with buttons were a last minute pick-up (Pebbles makes them, I think) from the scrapbook store.  The title is cut from Birthday Bash (boy) and the new Baby Steps cartridge.
Speaking of the new Baby Steps cartridge - look at these cute cuts!  We are throwing a baby shower for my niece next month and I bought this cart in anticipation of needing the baby boys and the sailboat image.  Everything will be so cute!  I am liking this cart a lot.  I've found that it includes an awesome font plus shadow and lots of cute cuts and titles for baby's first couple of years.  The baby sleeping on the moon is so sweet - I can see this as a little "Baby's Sleeping" door hanger for baby's room.  Of course you can make it any color to match your decor - for a boy or a girl.   The cartridge has lots of girl images, too, in case you were wondering.  I can't wait until all the pieces for the shower come together!  I will be starting on the invites soon, then on to all the decorations.
