Lil' Buddy by Pebbles

This bright and fun collection of papers from Pebbles was a perfect for some of my recent photos-- all about BOYS. This is my first experience with Pebbles papers, and I love them!
In my first layout that features my adorable nephew and sweet sister Suzanne, I did a hybrid page. In Photoshop Elements I used a gradient technique taught in Jessica Sprague's Computer Tricks for Scrapbooking book. I also took advantage of typing my journaling out too. I printed the three photos and journaling block onto an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of matte photo paper. Embellishing was easy with the paper and cardstock stickers that come with this paper collection.

My Lil' Farmer layout features my son who loves all things on the farm. I roughed up the edges of most of the paper elements on this page simply by scratching my fingernail along the edges. I used the Thickers Foam Letter Stickers and the Puffy Letter Stickers for the title-- a new favorite!

I also created some fun cards and jumped WAY out of the box on the shape of my star "Way 2 Go" card. See if you can break the mold of the rectangular shaped card... just make sure you can fit it into the envelope!
Pin It!

These lay-outs are so cheerful and cleverly done! I love them! I love what you did with both the chunky and bubble letters and I love the photos you chose. Perfect!I also adore the ribbons and the black and white photos. The journaling was really awesome too!
