Just Wander

This month at 3 Scrappy Boys, the Add-on kit featured the Wander line by Basic Grey and I fell in love! I was just thinking about how I was scrapping more layouts of my daughter compared to my son...and then I received this wonderful kit. What beautiful colors in the papers, blues, reds, greens...it screamed boy to me!!


The kit has these fun acrylic letters that I painted with acrylic paint for the title. Yes, sticks will become guns and boys will be boys! Ha ha!!


Some fun acrylic arrow stickers in the kit, too!! And so then what did I scrap? A photo of my daughter....whooops!!!


I don't know what it is about photos of backs to the camera. I just love them. Maybe because these 2 girls were oblivious to me taking photos and were just having fun exploring the tidepools, that's what I love about the photo.


This will be my last kit for 3 Scrappy Boys. I had a ball designing with their kits, thanks Heather and all the other team members for a great time!!! There are some talented new designers and some oldie-but-goodies over at 3SB, go check out their kits if you are in the market. They are awesome!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

So cute - love those papers. I haven't found a good scrapbook store here in our new town, so I may end up having to buy some kits....I'm still searching. Adorable layouts.
