You Can Have This Back!

These days, my son loves pineapple. That wasn't always the case though. His first taste wasn't quite what he expected.
You Can Have This Back! By Christy Strickler Supplies Patterned Paper: American Crafts; Alphas, Buttons: Basic Grey; Flowers: Prima; Modeling Paste: Liquitex; Punch: EK Success; Other: dish towel, wire form mesh, sequins

Sure, I could have used pineapple embellishments on this layout. Truth be told, I didn't have any. I opted for a more tropical style flower. I also loved the diagonal flow that was established by the pre printed patterned paper.It's always a lot of fun to find ways to add flowers to a boy's layout. The theme and bright colors keep it from feeling too feminine.

I created this layout for a tutorial in Scrapbook News and Review magazine. The tutorial gives you ideas for using wire mesh on your layouts. I hope you will crack open and copy and check it out.
