Boys and their Toys Layout

Louise used some old alphas and cloud stickers that had been in her stash a while and also Jenni Bowlin tags and the red paper is from MME Dilly Dally 

Jenny's old supplies include: some MME Kraft Funday Superstar paper, a brick wall embossing folder which has never been until now and some tiny brads which were bought when Jenny first started cardmaking. Papers are inked with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink.

My Buddy Layout

LJ has used Echo Park This and That Charming and some Cosmo Cricket washi tape. Old stash includes: the three chipboard pieces which are from an old mini album kit, the cardstock and the gems are pretty old too!  

Dinosaur Layout

Jennifer's layout featuring her baby boy in his super cute dinosaur outfit uses up some old sheets of Basic Grey 'Archaic' paper. Other supplies include Prima Fairy Belle paper and alphas, pearls and crystals.

I hope the DT projects inspire you!

Please remember to link directly to your project and not just your blog and to include a link back to the challenge.

If you do not have a blog, please e mail your entry to me at I'll upload it for you.

We look forward to seeing your Boy layouts and cards!
