Just One for Today...{& last RAK day}



Good Monday to you all out there! Just popping in ever so quickly with another layout to show you. Have another 6 to follow soon & an altered frame for this week, so keep checking back! And remember today is the LAST DAY to link up to my RAK as I choose a winner tomorrow!

This was a photo my husband took of my son & one of his sports coaches. The journaling says it all {sorry I had to obscure some of the details for privacy reasons}. I used Prima Shabby Chic Apricot Tree as the backing paper {because of the bird - it matched the journaling theme of "taking him under his wing"}.

The other printed papers laid on top are Studio Calico {loooooooooove these papers!} & down the side is a Dear Lizzy by American Crafts canvas strip cut from the 12inch fabric papers - love them too!

I used a MME journaling circle here & a Fiskars punch along the side of the green print see? Then again at the bottom & side of the photo - 3 different punch designs - can you find them all?!

The Z in the Dear Lizzy Thickers I used here looked more like a 3 to me so I cut my own Z out of cardstock & adhered some "sand" to it {you know the stuff kids do sand art with!} Of course they gave up on the sand art after a while & passed the sand on to my craft collection lol...

So there you have it! Who says you can't use Prima for boys? Or floral papers for that matter. Pffffttt to all that nonsense I say...

I am running late today. My daughter has an appointment with the orthodontist & I am meant to be in the car right now! So flying off round about now...still pop in to say HI though please!
Thanks for stopping by...

Yep, you can definitely use prima for boy layouts. How lovely that he formed such a special bond with this coach.
