I wanted to show you that pictures of little boys look just as good on "girly" paper and that B&W photos really do go with pretty much any paper design. I also wanted to show you how very little product one needs to create something like this.
I used CTMH's paper pack called Bella which has a floral/garden theme. The deep purples and rich yellows make this the perfect paper to showcase how my kids have "grown". The only other product I used was the Bella My Stickease collection.
CTMH's Stickease are a high quality, high detail cardstock sticker. They are repositional until rubbed on with your fingers. They always match your paper 100% and there are often times enough leftovers to make cards to match your layouts! At just 8.95 for two sheets these are a steal!
I am a big fan of journaling and a persons handwriting. However, in this layout I did not feel it necessary to have much journaling. I let the title tell the story, along with the picture and simply stated my kids names, their age and the month and year the photo was taken. I hope you enjoy this layout and let me know if you need any of the items mentioned above!
