Adore- Pion Designs Layout


I truly adore this boy!! He is just the most amazing kid and I love him so much!!!

I used the beautiful papers from Alma's Sewing Room from Pion Design to create this layout!!


I used the blue tones in this set of papers along with some beautiful flowers from Manorhouse Creations and Green Tara.


I surrounded the picture with a frame cut with my Cricut Machine. I added a page of quotes about boys right behind the frame.



I used this layout for 2 Challenges. The first one is sketch #197 at Skissedilla and the second is a challenge at a new blog "About a boy". You have to scrap a man or boy in your life and I chose to design a layout about my son. They asked us to write the boy's name on the page but I had to hide it as I don't like divulging my kid's names in a public site.
If you've noticed throught the years, I've never mentioned my kid's names. Some scrappy friends have asked me in private and of course I will share but I try very hard not to  put their names here as I think I expose them enough with the pictures. So I'm sorry for not putting the name but hiding it behind with a message for my special boy.




I used a lot of swirly pearls that I found in the dollar store.

A stunning layout, Keren!!! love the blue tones with the pearls and flowers.
Your boy looks a real charmer, and I'm sure he is :).
I, like you, don't write my boys' names on the web. With this challenge, I also wrote down their names on a hidden tags.
Love this lo!
