The new Bubblegum hills collection is full of all things pretty and girly, but having only 1 girl, and 4 boys, I have found the need to think outside the square a little. There are only so many layouts I can do of my daughter, before the boys start saying ‘wheres mine?’ . So I have decided to challenge myself to try to make a masculine layout out of even the most feminine of collections. For this layout I have steered away from the pinks in the collection, for obvious reasons, and have gone with the blues, greens and oranges. I have used ‘kraft’ paper as my background, as I think this gives it a little more of a masculine feel. And you cant go wrong with banners and stars as classic ‘boy’ embellishments.
