On to the story behind this kit! First, I asked my Creative Team to give me some suggestions for future kits and the amazing Ashlie suggested this palette with grey, light turquoise, and yellow. I knew I wanted to use the colors right away-- I love how gender-neutral they are, and how they make a really clean looking combination.
The theme idea came from my six-year-old son, Gordon. Not to brag or anything, but Gord is a charmer. He is energetic, good-looking, smart, and a natural leader and everyone, including the little girls, are drawn to him. Lucky for me (for now), he is subscribed to my suggestion that he is WAY too young to be interested in girls and I'm pretty sure that he and his buddies think they have cooties. This doesn't mean he hasn't noticed, though-- a couple of weeks ago, Gord brought home his school picture. He pointed to one of the girls in his class and said, "Kenzie is the cutest girl in our class. But don't worry, Mom-- we're just friends!" Whew! ;) Here's my layout with my little ladies man...
Our fun conversation made the perfect theme-- a fresh, young kit based on liking, crushes, friends-- nothing too romantic or girly. I kept the patterns very neutral and included some fun school-type elements like a lined paper strip and a number pattern here and there. There are also lots of doodle lines all around and one little red heart for that extra touch of color. I hope you like it as much as I do! :)
My CT and the CT at The Digichick came up with some great crush-themed layouts! Take a look...
And here are some more with other themes-- AMAZING, aren't they?!
Here's to likes, crushes, friends, and everything else wonderful to scrap! Speaking of "like"-- we're only 10 likes away from 1000 likes on Facebook! WOW!!! :D
