No Turning Back with The Boyfriend!
Let's do some scrapping with Cosmo Cricket's The Boyfriend collection! I love this line - it's perfect for my game lovin' almost teen boy, and yes, I even see layouts of our daughter with this line. I picked up the crafting kit a while ago, but this has been my first chance to delve into it.
What I really like about this layout is the double meaning in the title, "No Turning Back". Sure, it ties in with my journaling...but what it really means is that on the first day of school Kyle was so grown up he would not even LOOK at me so I could get his picture. Sure, he had to get hoofin' to school so he wouldn't be late, but he could have at least let his mom take a picture on his first day of middle school. They grow up too fast! (LOL)
Last week Kristen, from Cosmo, sent me a package of goodies to make up for a little oversight in an order I had placed.(Thanks Kristen!) "The Boyfriend" crafting kit was included - and I was thrilled to now have a double supply of this line!
Because I now had two journaling card sheets, I could cut into the sneaker design and use it as an embellishment/sub-title holder using Pink Paislee letter stickers. I love the back side of the sneaker journaling card as well, so I could cut without guilt knowing I had a spare.
When I cropped this photo I realized there was plenty of street to be had. Rather than bring the boys down and have lots of air, I chose to raise them up and use the road as a surface for "writing" down my journaling.
Have you scrapped any back to school photos yet? I highly recommend creating some pages, or a back-to-school mini album with The Boyfriend. Picking up a crafting kit, and grab some extras of your favorites - it will make you feel guiltless when you cut into your paper. (LOL)
