And here is what I believe to be why: (I have just learned something about myself.) I find that I quickly become bored doing masculine pages and can do all the frilly girly pages I want and never get tired of using flowers, ribbons, glitter and all other kinds of bling.
I had actually started an album for my sons graduation and had the photos printed, paper & stickers picked out but that was as far as it got and has been sitting forgotten all these years.
So now I am on a mission to at least finish his graduation and start his high school years. So far I have 2 pages done:
I still have two more pages to do before I will be finished but I want to edit some of the photos I had already printed a little differently and find some of the memorabilia I want to include in the layout.
This page is after he graduated and we took pictures with family and friends. I really liked the template I used to design the page. I used two of the photo spaces for journaling and one for embellishments. I found it hard to come up with embellishments. I used stamps and embossed them, cut them out and adhered some of them with foam adhesive to give some dimension. I used CM Vellum Expressions (the word Son) and a frame also using foam adhesive. I cut a 12" border sticker into four 3" sections and used them under some of the photos. I typed the names of family and friends on pattern paper and put them under the remaining photos.
So leave me a comment and tell me if you have a hard time doing masculine pages too. I would like to know that I am not alone.
