“Little Man” – Scrap The Boys – August Moodboard 2015

This month over at Scrap the Boys the moodboard was a little different.  It was a simple photo of a mason jar with words about boys and their mummas.  The rules were a bit different too.  Rather than a boys only photo, the photo this month could include mum.  I was only going to do a photo of Leo but then I changed my mind when the layout was coming together.  Here is the Moodbard here…

I liked the words but they were a bit too generic for me.  So, I decided to write my own and what I feel.  My mum often makes statements to me like, “Do you remember…” or “when their all grown up you’ll wish…”  It makes me worried I will forget.  My kids are all less than three years old and their is so much I have forgotten unless prompted by the thousands of photos or videos I have thanks to the invention of the iPhone.  I take photos of my kids daily.  Not each of them everyday but everyday I take atleast one photo of one of them. I don’t often take photos of me and them.  I am always the one behind the camera.  So, with this moodboard, I am making the promise to myself to get more photos of me with my kids.  Even if they are cheesy selfies.  At least it shows I was there.

For this layout I used the blue colour of the picture and teamed it up with some yellow just because blue and yellow go well together. I included a mason jar that I hand carved as for the life of me I cannot find my Dear Lizzy one that is somewhere “safe”.  I remember thinking “I’m going to lose that” so I put it in a safe place. I filled the jar with X’s and O’s for hugs and kisses.  I included some in the background to tie it all together too.  My background is done with gelatos and turned out better than I expected.  Rather than hand writing my words, I typed them up on my recently acquired typewriter thanks so a wonderful friend and her dad who kept everything.  I love that it is a cursive type rather than just standard typewriter font.    The layout was finished off with some hand dyed gauze, a Charms Creation X and a Flutterby Designs Flair.
