John is 15 layout

Just to be clear, I did ask my son if it was okay to scrap these photos with purple and aqua!  I had this great patterned paper from DCWV from early 2000’s and it was perfect for the Studio Challenge for March!

I started with DCWV cardstock topped with “Happy Birthday Cream Green” patterned paper.  A few sheets coordinated well from the Provo Craft Slab II.  I tried my hand at melting Pony Beads to create the enamel dots, but next time I will try the paper + UTEE.  Studio Calico wood verneer hearts and arrow are inked with Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue.  The title is also stamped in this ink using Autumn Leaves Cutsie Alpha.  Fireworks Grape Jelly and Bahama Blue (aqua colour) add interest to the background and fulfilled the mists in the recipe.  The stamped stitches are Technique Tuesday’s Hanging by a Thread and stamped in Memento Grape Jelly.  I journaled in Zig Pure Violet.  I found a great match for the layout in my ribbon stash.  The only item I didn’t use was flowers in the recipe . . . and that is one thing my son probably is glad I left off!

I would like to enter into the Studio Recipe Challenge for March.  Thanks for the lovely inspiration!


  1. I love these colors for this boy-layout! Why not using purple for boys? Great take on the challenge! Thanks for playing along with the studio challenges!
