Flowers for "boy" themed layouts.

     I have recently fallen in love with using flowers on my pages. This may not seem so significant for those of you who are adventurous, but I never thought I could use flowers on my pages as my primary layout subjects were always my two boys. I used to look longingly at the packages of flowers and wish I could somehow make them work.
     I finally decided that I would at least buy some in case I ever had a girly page to do. It took some courage, but once I did the first boy-themed page with a--GASP--flower on it, I was hooked! I convinced myself that flowers aren't only for frilly girl pages and now I have been using them everywhere.These are two layouts I did that I had so much fun making that I hung them in our side hallway.

     Do you have an embellishment or technique you've been afraid to try?

  1. As a mom of three sons, I know what you mean, Christine. Your layouts are so sweet. The flowers complement them nicely.
