When doing pages about my husband, I try to keep in mind the right balance of being masculine and not too embellished, but also fun and interesting. This layout seemed to fit the bill for me.
I started this layout with photos from various times (a dinner, the day of his birthday, and after he used his gift cards), that all tied into his birthday. It's not my typical style, but in this case, told the story I wanted to share.
My background pages are from Echo Park's Birthday Boy mini theme. I used Stampin' UP! inks that matched the stripes, then stamped and punched the flags using the Pennant Parade set. I printed my journaling, then used the SU/Sizzix Framelits Labels die set to cut the shape in my Cuttlebug. I added a few more flags and sticker sentiments, and I was happy with the outcome. Cute and fun, not too girly ... I think I did it! :)
