Kraft It Up's November Challenge & the trouble with boys {layouts, that is}!

There's been a lot of chatter lately at Scrap Therapy about the things we find hard to scrap.  For me, that would be boy layouts.  My gorgeous boy's album is bare when compared to my daughter's & sheesh, do I feel guilty LOL!!!  He's the funniest little boy & I have so many hilarious details to record but, for some reason my boy mojo is sadly lacking.  So I made a deal with myself ... no stamping, no card challenges & definitely no girly layouts until I do some layouts for my little man.

Luckily, I found heaps of inspiration at both Kraft It Up & Scrap The Boys!

Kraft It Up's November challenges was to use kraft of course & decorative edges.  Think diecut papers, border punches, decorative strips, pompom trims etc.  So here's what I came up with :)!

Unfortunately, our kitchen renovation has taken over our lives so that's it as far as creating goes!  My Scrap the Boys layout is sitting half-completed but will have to stay that way for another week or so :(.  We've had a huge couple of weeks ripping up masonite underlay stapled to our timber floors ... OMGoodness I NEVER want to see another floor staple in my life & it's going to be hectic for a little while yet!  The good news is that this time next week life should return to normal & we'll have our new kitchen ... yay :).
