Real Men Wear Pink Scrapbook Layout
I was so excited to get to work with the From Me to You collection, and when I saw the Ring Ring paper I knew exactly what moment I wanted to document!
I started by gathering my papers that were influenced by my photo choice – the Ring Ring paper because of the phone, the Hello paper for the words, and the Thanks paper for the color – I knew this was the basis of my layout and then I grabbed a few other things that I thought might go well also.
I began by arranging my photo and a few pieces I knew I wanted to add in, then came the job of fussy cutting the phone dials and arranging them on the paper.
Once I had my basic layout created I looked for other papers that would give a splash of color to my layout. I think the little envelopes are so cute and it was the perfect size to contain one of the sayings from the Notes paper that fit so well, “I thought of you and smiled” which is just what I do when I see this picture of my boy!
After I had created my layout I began to look for ways to tie my phone dials all together so nothing was floating, this is where the twine came in to imitate the look of the phone cord.
A few stickers and chips completed the look. I knew I wanted to use the title Real Men Wear Pink, but those pink Thickers were so girlish! So I grabbed my fun roller stamp and dialed in the word hello to match my theme and stamped my letters giving them a little bit of boyishness!
