Sailor Boy

Hello everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
I hope your weekend is off to a great start.  So far, it's smooth sailing around here (pun intended)!

Today is Scrapbooking Saturday over at My Cricut Craft Room and I have a sweet layout to share with you.  If you have visited my blog in the past, these photos may look familiar to you.  I have used the same pictures in my scrapbook of Blake (my darling grandson). But today's layout of these photos is for the scrapbook I am working on for Blake's mommy!  (And I wonder why I can never get caught up?).  If you would like to see how I scrapped these photos in my book, click here.

Ok, on to today's layout for Blake's mommy....

Patterned paper for this layout is from the Nantucket Stack from DCWV.  Solid colors are from my paper stash...I was able to use up a few paper scraps on this one!

Here's a closer photo of the first page...

What a cutie pie! For this page I used the following:

* Martha Stewart punch for the red strip along the side and some white ric-rac.
* Sailor Boy is cut using Alphalicious at 1.5 inches.
* The compass is from Cricut's Pack Your Bags, cut at 3.5 inches, I added a silver brad to the center.

And here's page 2....

For this page I used the following:
* That awesome Martha Stewart punch and more ric-rac.
* The anchor is from Life Is A Beach. I cut the anchor at 3.5 inches and added some red/white twine. I also added a few dots with a sliver gel pen.
* I cut that cute sailboat form Life Is A Beach at 5.5 inches.  A few stitching lines and silver brads really brought it to life!  I used the same MS punch to create a few waves for my boat.

I may have gotten a bit carried away with the ric-rac on this one, but I love the nautical feel it adds to the layout.

Doesn't Blake make an adorable Sailor Boy?  I hope you enjoyed my layout today!  Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits and your sweet comments.  I hope you will stop by My Cricut Craft Room and see what the other designers have in store for you today!

Until next time,
