My Maja Design June DT Reveal
Part Two
"Henry Boy"

 Hello there thanks for stopping by the blog. Today I have a layout to share with you & it 
features my baby grandson, Henry. Now it is a a plain & simple layout & not what I normally
 do. I don't do that many boy layouts so when I saw these gorgeous papers from Maja Designs 
"Life By the Sea" collection, I thought how perfect
 they were for a baby boy layout.

For my background I have used  "The Westcoast" paper. Love these gorgeous
 nautical stripes & I have trimmed it with some of the ""Landmark" paper..

The little kite I have made at the side of the photo was out of some of the scraps 
I had left over of both the "Landmark" & some "Sailing" papers.

 Next up I decided to make a little pinwheel. I used the "Drop the Anchor"
 paper for this. I like the way you can see both side of the paper on this.
I also used up some of the decorator strips which are on the bottom of every 
Maja paper, & ran them vertically down my page to add a graphic element to the design.

 Next up I decided to make a little circular pleated embellishment using the "Landmark"
 paper too. I just love the way this collection mixes & matches so perfectly.

 Some string for texture, some ink splatters,  a little stamping,  a few layers &
 some 2Crafty chipboard including my custom made title, kite & chain border.

Hey presto, all done. 
 I know we all like to do pretty creations using pretty papers & lots of flowers, but 
occassionally we have to do some boy things & what better range to do it with, 
than this "Life By The Sea" collection.
These are the four Maja Design papers I have used....

Well thats all for today.
Until next time.
