Pinkfresh Studio Boys Fort Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio Boys Fort Blog Hop!  Today, the Scrapbook Design Team will share projects using the Boys Fort collection, which is perfect for the boys and men in your life!  You should have arrived at my Blog from the talented Amanda Baldwin's Blog.  Make sure you follow along the hop and leave a comment on each Designer's post, to be eligible for the Boy's Fort collection giveaway.



I love the mix of neutral colors and masculine colors in this collection.  I used a patterned paper for the background of my layout, that had a more subtle pattern than some of the others in the collection.  I wanted to add a large stitched title, and have it stand out by using Black embroidery floss against the neutral background.




When I started the layout, I printed a color photo and a Black & White photo.  Then I couldn't decide which one I wanted to use, so I ended up using both of them.  I loved the effect of the two different sized photos and the contrast of having one in color and one in Black & White.



I finished up the design, with different embellishments from the collection!






TWO WINNERS WILL BE CHOSEN TO WIN THE ENTIRE BOYS FORT COLLECTION!
