Boys Rule kit projects :)

Wow, it's been a while since I posted. Well that will change soon, I have several projects to share in the next week or two :)

Today I'd like to share a couple projects with you that I created with the Boys Rule April kit. First up is my take on the April 27th sketch challenge.

Now, I know what you're thinking. "Abby!? Are you blind? That doesn't look like the sketch!" lol Well I promise you that it actually started out mostly following the sketch. But throughout the creative process, it kinda took on a life of it's own lol. I rotated the photo, instead of big round matting circles I used sprockets, the title was lowered and the journaling strips we raised. I had hoped the end result would still look similar to the sketch, it does a lil bit.. in a few places lol. Anyway! I love how this page turned out and my son is such a cutie-patootie in this photo.. if I do say so lol. You can view my YouTube video here on how it all came together. I have other Boys Rule video projects on my channel also, if you'd like to browse.

Next up is this picture frame I created for my son's photos.

I bought a cheap collage photo frame at Dollar Tree, you can find so many crafty bargains there! I covered the frame with SS "Awesome" paper, sanded and distressed it, added a few other papers in the smaller frames, adhered a bunch of embellies and tucked in my son's photos. And wahla! Nice inexpensive project! This frame looks awesome on my bookcase, btw. :)

That's all from me this month with the April kit.. I am sooooo looking forward to creating with the May kit! I hope you were able to purchase a May kit for yourself! :)

Have a great Monday! :)
