Good morning! It's the last Monday of the month :) it's my turn again! Before I proceed, I would like to say thank you for your sweet comments in my post last month,  Colorful Raindrops. I hope you will enjoy this layout I have made for you just the same :) 

How do you usually start making your projects? 

For me, to be able to start creating, I think of a "challenge" to  push me... especially when the mojo isn't  there... So for this, I kind of asked myself to: 

1. Create a BOY layout using the feminine (because of the glitters!) crackle cardstock, assigned to me this month. Boy layout means NO FLOWERS.
2. Use this faulty printout in a layout. In printing (done a few weeks back for another project) I forgot to check "size" so I actually printed an A4 photo using 4R paper... thus, the half-face photo. Somehow, I felt I can still salvage it, so I didn't throw it! 

I have made a short video (6 seconds!) in vine of how I did the first part of my layout .. the materials, the misting and how I tried to arrange the mini dewdrops... click HERE to see the vine video and maybe we can follow each other there? It's fun! :) 

Now for the close ups... 

... one way to make a masculine layout is using robots, bar codes (that bar code is so cute it says "boys will be boys") gears, buttons, jute ... these boy-themed details balance the "prettiness" of the dew drops and glittered cardstocks and stickers.

... look at that! I love that I can still use GLITTERS for my son's layout. Because I don't have a baby girl.. and I love glitters. If there's a will, there's a way. Haha! 

... the glitter cardstock frame strip gave that photo a "finished" look. Who would think it was printed wrongly? :)

Hope you enjoyed my post.. I will see you again soon... Have a blessed Lenten Season and advance happy Easter!
