Welcome to Scrap the Boys

Welcome to Scrap the Boys!!

As a mother of 6 children, 5 of them boys, I have often had people ask me how I come up with layout ideas with so many boys with the general consensus being that girls are much easier to scrap!
There was once a time where I would've agreed with that and found it hard to scrap photos of my boys myself.
I was lucky, however, to 'stumble' across my own 'style' and now I don't find it very hard to 'Scrap the Boys' at all. Actually, when I get a chance to do girly layouts for either my daughter or myself, I seem to get 'scrap blocked'! Hmmmm..go figure!
Seeing as there are so many scrappers out there who do find it hard to scrap boys layouts, I thought I would dedicate a blog just for the boys and hopefully inspire mothers of sons' to scrap more boy layouts.
From baby boys to teenage boys...even hubbies, fathers and layouts of other male relatives or friends... I'm hoping this blog will have something for everyone!!
I would love for you to use this gallery as your own and share your work with others as well.
Please send me copies of your layouts to:
scraptheboys@hotmail.com
so I can add them to the gallery!
I look forward to sharing with you and, in turn, viewing your boys layouts.
Cheers
Sharryn :)

Sharryn this is a wonderful idea, your so clever. I am sure lots of scrapbookers will be visiting here and sharing their ideas on scrapping boy layouts.

Even though I usually scrap layouts of my daughter I do actually have 6 nephews too. I really want to be able to scrap more photos of them so I'm sure to be popping in here to visit time and time again for new ideas and inspiration.

I have recently made 2 new boy themed layouts using a couple of photos of some of my nephews and will email them to you soon to be added to the gallery for this blog.

Thanks Sharryn. Have a great day. From Susan@Scrapboxx
