My Little Boys In Blue

My boys when they were small, back in 1995.. It was December in Florida, so it did get a little cooler at night and so the boys had to wear these footies to bed.. I always bought the same color for both boys, so they didn't have to argue over anything..
Here is a close up of the title and flowers.. The title came from me looking at the photo and thinking to myself "Aaaaaaaaaw, my little boys in blue!"..
I actually did a little journaling..LOL I cut a scalloped circle and it says "My little boys in blue, Oh what shall I do?, but love the both of you!".. I thought of that all by myself..LOL and that's why I don't journal...LOL
and I just have to say how much I hate the cardstock I am stuck buying in this country, I have a brand new blade on my paper cutter and look at the edges of the picture mat.. it's just awful. almost as if the paper is so full of pulp that it just won't stick together..
Here is just another close up of the title..I wanted it big and bulky to take up a lot of the room..
Finally a photo of all the layers of paper I added to this layout.. its heavy!!!

  3. I love how you were able to use flowers on a boys layout. I've been afraid to do that. but you made it work. Great layout.

  4. Nanne this is so cute and reminds me of my boys when they were little and in their sleep suits. What is the age difference? The colours on this are so striking I just love it.
