Boy at Play

You hear the lament over and over in digiland:  "That's SO cute, but I have to scrap BOYS" followed by a whimper and a wail, LOL.  The truth is, it's hard to find kits that are boy-centric.  Having contributed my share of girl-friendly scrap supplies, I figured it was time to dust off the boy concept.  Long ago in scrapland I created a couple of boy kits (very early in my design career, LOL).  There were just a few pieces that I still liked, so I spiffed them up and then I created a whole lot of new goodies just for boys.  Toys, tools, sporty things, grungy things, mobile things.  Add in some masculine fasteners and a few things to tuck here and there, add a liberal helping of boyish papers (ranging from camo to bright stars and arrows) and you have a stash building kit of boy happiness :)



And I have lots of cute examples for you from the talented ladies on my team:

Last are a couple of great layouts from Sondra & Kim that use some elements from the freebie add-on pack:


And here's a little taste of Boy at Play for you!  Don't forget to grab the full kit in my DigiChick store while it's at the introductory sale price!  It will be 20% off all day Thursday and Friday :)

Happy Scrapping!

Great kit! I have girls, but I use these colors quite often, especially when they were little, tom-boys all around! Thanks for the freebie!!!

Just so you know, you spelled Pittsburgh wrong. The city in PA has an "H" at the end.
