When scrapping, I always have fun when I figure out to use a special themed kit for a layout with totally different topic. 🙂

In my recent post, I wrote about using a 4th July girly kit for an everyday boy page. Today I am going even more extreme about scrapping my son. 🙂 Let’s start with this latest Shawna’s kit, Signs of Spring!

Signs of Spring by Shawna Clingerman

Yes, this is definitely a girly kit with all the shades of pink. But if you pick up the right photo, it can make a perfect layout for a boy, too!


When you look carefully at those photos, you can find T.H.E. match for that kit – on the left page, it is my make-up. Even though my face is blurred as the photos were shot on very wide aperture, the pink is significant. On the right page, there are also my lips to be seen, but especially my patterned shirt goes with the kit perfectly.

I just adjusted hue of the background paper a bit to get the pinks into colder shades to go with my lips.

So, all the mamas of boys – don’t give up the pink pages just because you have a boy! You can make it!

May the pink be with you!
