As I’ve previously mentioned, I wasn’t entirely convinced by the class examples included with my box of goodies from Crop in the Country … but with some creative thinking and encouragement from The Best Friend, I produced several layouts I’m happy with. I focused my efforts on updating early pages from The Boy Child’s albums.
My immediate thought on seeing this design was, “Too much pink, what am I going to do with that?” But by choosing to focus on the pink dress worn by The Boy Child’s wee friend at a party in July 2011, the finished spread works well and doesn’t look out of place in a ‘boy’ album. You can see the original version here.
Another predominately pink spread, but one that I made work by choosing a photo where both boys are wearing stripes and then printing it out in black and white. (Hard to believe that all three are now teenagers!)
This spread was quick and easy to assemble and I really like how the finished page looks … so much so, I’ve already reused the design on another spread. You can see the original 2011 spread here.
