Soar ~Scrap with V~


Good day friends! We are still on vacation but had scheduled this special layout to share with you for Scrap with V today! You can find the sketch there and I hope you can pop by and see what the rest of the DT has come up with as well!

I used Echo Park's Little Boy collection for this. I am madly in love with this company! =)

The wonderful photo (that my husband said was awful but is so not true...) is my eldest son Scotti. Who is in a big time airplane faze so this one was for him! He said "thanks Mom!" LOL!

I used a good number of cartridges on this. The swirl from Wild Card (I think) and the plane and Soar font is from Boys Will Be Boys, the clouds are from Create a Critter. I did some inking on most of this page, using a mix of Tumbled Glass and Broken China distress ink. Buttons are from my stash. And photo editing was with Photoshop Elements 9 (for adding text).

And I think that covers it! I have really been enjoying doing so many boy pages lately...something always so happy about them! And imagine what I'll be coming up with next after this week vacation! LOL!

See you guys soon....sure by the time this posts I'll be craving my computer and scrap room! LOL!

Love this Leah!! Love the swirly frame and the cute plane. Also love how you have included the little piece of paper from him, and I love love love the text on the photo - will have to try that. Just a question. Where is the cute patterned paper from. So adorable with the little planes.
Give the plane-lover a big hug from Norway. Wish you lived here so my hubby could take him flying in "our" plane!

Hi Leah, I love your layout! The paper is fantastic for boys. I jotted down the name so I can look it up. I like how you surrounded your sweet son's picture with the title and paper. It made a nice frame around the picture. I am awarding you the Irresistably Sweet Blog Award! Please come by my blog to pick it up after you return from your vacation. Can't wait to see your layouts from your trip! Crafty hugs, Sabrina
