WOW - Donna Salazar Designs

Hi everyone!  Today I have another 'boy style' layout to share with you, using Donna's Storybook papers.  This is my son, just a few weeks ago... a rare 'allowed' photo moment!  Why he needs to pull such a goofy smile now I don't know, but I'm just happy he at least smiles!

As always, the background patterns of Donna's papers are perfectly versatile.  These papers had cute funky images, but were a little young for this photo of Kel, so I have just used the background patterns.  Look at how cool that blue corrugated paper looks!!

I used a Spellbinders Die to cut some of the Manilla from the Mix'd Media Stax to create a little journal card.  I also trimmed up some Canvas and made tags and little tuck-ins to add interest.  

I've also tucked in some of the Want2Scrap Denim, and cut some into a little tab with Donna's Creative Page Tabs Die from Spellbinders. The GCD Compatibles Alpha's were lightly inked around the edges and then outlined with a sepia pen.

The Dusty Attic Chipboard was inked with Truffle and Denim Mix'd Media Inx and then spritzed with water to blend the colours.

I hope you find inspiration from my layout!  It's been so nice to get back to 'boy style' and Donna's Storybook papers made it so much easier!! 

Take care,
