Pink for Boys

Thank you for the all of the congrats and well wishes!
I can't wait to start sharing my interpretations of Sketches In Thyme's gorgeous sketches.

Yesterday I mentioned the Bubblegum pink Thickers that have been collecting dust. 
They just didn't work for me on that cute girly layout, so I used them on this one instead:

Pink for boys?! Sure. And butterflies and hearts, too!
Don't limit yourself when you scrap, there are NO RULES.

Well, there are some rules.
Like not bleeding on your paper.
Or rubbing your eyes after playing with glitter.

I used chalk ink with my beloved arrow template from The Crafter's Workshop.

The effect is so cool, it almost looks like spray paint.

I love my boys, and I love using up all these scraps!


  1. OMGoodness!!! I love everything about this layout!! Seriously! The hearts and arrows are so colorful and fun and putting them on the black really shows them off!

  2. Nicely done! I LOVE the cluster of hearts. TFS.

  6. Awesome layout Mel! That's chalk, wow looks great and the the bright colors are perfect for your pic, very nice my friend!!
