Knowledge Is Powers-GenerationsCrafting

Having two teenage boys, I actually struggle with a lot with their layouts cause they don't want them covered in flowers and lace..LOL  So, Boy was I excited when I got these great new Bo Bunny Cambridge papers from Floren over at Generations Crafting..  Absolutely perfect for all guy pages and even more so for school layouts.. 
Oh, I did another project to go with this layout, but You'll have to come back next week to see what it is..LOL

Found a great pic of my youngest son Adam that were taken at his school last fall.. He hates this pic cause he had Phys Ed just before pictures were taken.. and by the way, he got a hair cut the very next day after I seen this pic..LOL
I distressed most of the edges on this layout, with either a distress tool or with crackle paint and distress inks..
I had so much fun with these papers and once again, had a tough time choosing cause they are all so fantastic..
That paper line is as follows:
