Guest Design spot Lexi Creations

This is my second post today, please scroll down to see my DT card for Whoopsi Daisy.

Good morning! It's another beautiful day here in Scotland, hope you're enjoying good weather in your part of the world.

I'm delighted to have been asked to Guest Design for Lexis Creations. The theme this time is "For the man/boy in your life".


I got to choose one of the fabulous digis from the Fairy Dust Craftstore and being in a scrapbooking mode opted for the "Slugs n Snails sentiment".
This layout features my younger son when he was about 5 years old, he was always very photogenic and such a cute wee blondie! I've created my layout in My Memories Suite and used papers from a kit called "Oh Boy", the Boys Cluster Frame is from LLL Creations and the slug and snail embellishments are from Marie H Designs "Chasing Bugs" kit.

Please pop over to the challenge blog to see the creations of the regular design team and I do hope you can join us this challenge.

Challenges entered:
The Studio Challenges - favourites 
My favourites are digi scrapping, using lots of layers and incorporating digis into my layouts.
Paper Pretties - bold bright colours
Joanna Sheen - remember when
Secret Crafter - anything but a card
Digi Doodle Shops Best - let's go spotty
