Muted Monday: When bros met and hung out



So I decided to challenge myself and work with a muted colour palette on this layout to really let the "so-so" photos stand out a little more....because it is, as usual, impossible to get a nice photo of the nephews.*winks*


Since nephew #1 is staying with us, the bros don't get to meet up that often...and when they do, they always have fun together...even when doing mundane things like getting a haircut or eating chocolate chip cookies (baked by their fave aunt of course).


It was fun pulling out muted colours from my scrap pile and using up a whole bunch of mismatched alphas. As always, I'm hopeful that this year, I will get to use up my stash! *cue laughter!*


Playing along with Stick It Down.

Edited: This layout was a winner at Stick It Down in January. :)

It looks great! And good job using up the mismatched alphas. But what's the fun of using up your stash? Buying more, I guess!

I love using different alphas for titles and/or journaling! Not only does it use up stash but the look of the mix of letters is usually really fun! I love that despite using muted colors, your layout still has a lot of nice pops of color!

Adorable LO, like what you did with the sketch and of course your nephews are a handsome bunch.

I love it! The title alone is completely brilliant, and then all your layers and details puts this over the top!
