Bowties are cool.

>> Friday, July 22, 2011



In light of all of the awesome new lines coming out from Lily Bee, I figured I needed to get to using up my stash to make room for new stuff!

I created this simply designed layout using that staple of the scrapbooker- the circle punch.

I am not, by nature, a very "graphic" styled designer, so to add a few touches of my own whimsy, I distressed the edges and made several small changes, like tilting the bottom large section.
To give the design a little more depth, I popped up some elements with foam adhesive.

I also hand cut my own "bowtie" to go along with the obvious theme of the layout! I try to keep my boy pages a little more graphic and simple, and I think I achieved that, while sticking true to my style. :)

Lily Bee Products Used:

Stationery- Butter & Tangerine Patterned Paper
Happily Lost- Good Book & Villa Patterned Paper
Picket Fence- Fresh Air Patterned
ABC Cardstock Stickers
