Pink is for boys, too

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to comment on my posts. I enjoy reading what everyone has to say, and your comments always bring a smile to my face. I don't know anyone who couldn't use a quick smile every now and again!

I used to struggle with pink papers or with papers that had pink in them. I never thought that I would be able to use them unless I was working with pictures of my nieces. I don't know exactly how or when I changed my mind about that....but I did. Now, I love using pink...and it is fun to scrap Ryan's pictures in shades of pink. I created this layout using some pink paper from Fancy Pants!

These pictures are just some random shots of my buddy that I captured on Christmas morning. He was making funny faces for me, and I was snapping away. The lighting was bad, but I like how these turned out. They are so him.

The papers that I used are from the Fancy Pants Splendid collection. It's a great line for Valentine's Day, which will be upon us in a few short weeks. It's a limited edition collection, so get some now before it's gone!

My original plan was to make the background from the paper that I did the journaling on, but I just knew the whole design would look so much better with a pink background...so I went for it! And I love it! Just goes to show you that stepping outside of your normal box is a good thing!

I am off to spend my Sunday scrapping! Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
