Boys will be Boys!


Hiya!  Wow, what a week!  Our 6 y/o son starts 1st Grade on Monday and it's been CAH-RAZY!  He in in private christian school and they start a week earlier than the girls - boo, sad face! :(   Speaking of boys, that's the theme for Pixie Dust Studio this week ... Boys will be Boys!   Here is my take (forgive the lighting, I'll be re-taking it tomorrow in natural light) on the theme - using  Up Up and Away.  Isn't he cute?





 
I  used the SCS CC335 color combo for this week of Kraft, Red and Yellow which is a great color combination.  I found my old Basic Grey stack with coordinating colors - green was the dessert color of the week except a tiny smidge of blue peeks out in a few spots ;)  I added twine instead of ribbon and 3d propped the balloons.   And I just love that little froggie peeking out of his bucket - so cute!

I sure you hope you can us this week!  You can link up your Boy cards here on the Challenge Blog, using a PDS image and your creativity, of course!   And did you know some of the Pixie Dust Images are on sale?  Sure are! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
~Kelly

  20. I think this is the first time I've seen you use something other than Riley on your cards! At first I thought I had arrived at the wrong blog. LOL Seriously, this boy card is just really great. The colors really do work well together. I love that you paper-pieced the balloons.
