Lily Bee for my class...not just for girls!

Since I had a little boy, I have really been drawn to boyish lines OR trying to find ways to make non-boyish lines look boyish!  And that was the challenge I had with this Lily Bee Head Over Heels line. 

I chose this line to use in my upcoming class at Scrappn' Savvy.  When I hold a class, I try to do a mix of pages, and I know in the past I have leaned a bit more towards doing girly pages!  But now I have have trying to balance it a bit more and create boy ones, too! 

So here is my first page, which is indeed, girly.  My mom came to visit in October and she and Charlotte were in the bathroom while my mom was getting ready, and they both came out with a whole bunch of "gump gump" on (that's what Charlotte calls Makeup!  :)  ).

I put my circle punch to work on this one.  I love all these papers together...the colors are just so bright and fun.  Of course I spent like 30 mins moving the circles around to get the colors distributed like I wanted!  :)

I fussy cut some of the doilies from the doily paper and tucked them in here and there and added some pearls to the center.  For the journaling block, I used some lined paper from the Memorandum collection.

And now for my boy page!  I've decided that you can add the color Navy to anything and it will make it boyish!  :)  I picked the orange, teal, and grey from the Head Over Heels line, added some accents of navy, and *poof*, I had a boyish page (well there was a bit of designing in there, too!). This page is based on a sketch by Liz at The Scrappiest and is one of the sketches we are using for the Sketch-A-Thon at Memorable Seasons this month!

I did some light stamping in the background with a text stamp from Stampin' Up and splattered some paint.  It was a bit plain after I added my papers and photos, so I added some buttons for a bit more fun.

My little guy is getting so big.  He love to wrestle with his stuffed toys on his playmat!  He is rolling over all the time and is starting to get his legs under himself and push....he's gonna be a mover! 

Thanks for stopping by today!

I think your Mom and Charlotte lok divine! Those little circles got my vote at PS! Also the one of Kyler with those chevrons is amazing!
