Being the mother of a boy, I take advantage of any opportunity to scrap in pink. So when my sister took this photo of me frocked up before a night out for dinner, how could I resist using a good serve of pink? The blacks and greys in the layout balance out the dominating pink background. The dash of blue just gives some contrast and zing.
The butterflies have been punched from the same pink paper as the background but I have used the reverse side which is a fine ledger style print. These coordinating dot/ledger prints that came with the recent releases are so useful. I love a patterned paper background and the polka dot print is a favorite for me.
Again I have utilized the ABC stickers to form part of my title, which allows me to have a longer and more meaningful title that if I had only used large letters.
So are you a mother of only boys? Do you take the opportunity to lash out with pink when you can?
