The stars on the the background paper made me think of the American flag, which I thought perfectly suited our all American boys. In these photos, my son and his cousin, both age 2, are at the lake shore, picking up rocks and throwing them into the water. I can't tell you how enthralled they were by this simple activity!
The element sheet in this collection had a sticker that said: Genuine through and through. I added the word "boys" to make a title block: Genuine Boys Through and Through. There was just enough room to squeeze the letters in. The letter stickers above the block are from October Afternoon, Sasparilla, and I inked them darker to give a more distressed look. The tag under the photo is from Little Yellow Bicycle's Hello, Fall!
I love the big, bold chevron paper that was part of the Genuine line and I used the chevron as a mat under the photo block. I like the way the chevron pattern forms arrows to draw attention to the pictures. I added a bit of yellow cardstock under the chevron for a pop of color then stitched the two together with a denim thread. To finish the page, I stitched a brown frame around the page using heavy duty thread.
