Boys Rule - Gaming Kit

Tonight I'm sharing some layouts I created with the January Boys Rule Gaming Kit. This kit is loaded with WRMK's Vintage T collection and so much more.. it is awesome! I love all the papers, especially the stitched papers and the embellishments that Laura-Lee added are perfect! I've been having a great time creating with the kit. This kit is currently sold out (Woot!) so I hope you were able to get one! :)

My first layout follows Boys Rule's first January sketch. It's a great sketch and I hope you all will play along :)

This is Braydon from a few years back.. and one of my absolute favorite photos of him. It may be difficult to spot, but there's actually a Griffin emblem on his jacket so I knew right away that I would use the photo for this collection :)

Most all of the papers were distressed by inking the edges with the Midnight ColorBox ink included in the kit. I used the Smash pocket folder as a photo mat and also cut the product strip off of 2 of the paper sheets and used those as embellishments. I really like how this turned out :)

My next layout was a new challenge for me! I'm a self proclaimed over-embellisher. I like to add a lot to my pages. When in doubt if you have enough.. add more!! Right?! lol Well for this layout, I challenged myself to make it clean and simple and I'm so glad I did!

This page was created entirely out of paper and ink.. with one small sticker. Although I LOVE all the great embellies included in the kit, I really wanted to let these photos take the stage. I love the grungy look it has.. all of the paper is distressed and slightly inked. And the quote is a new favorite shared with me by my bestie, Suz. I'm thinking I should try simple pages more often :)

Have a great evening!
