Boy Oh Boy Blog Hop -- 12x12 "All Boy" Layout :)

Welcome to the "Boy Oh Boy" Blog Hop!!

What are little boys made of?
Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails
That's what little boys are made of!"

How exciting that you're here for this super-fun hop showcasing cards, layouts and projects featuring all things BOY!!  If you're ready to hop, LET'S GO!!  If you've arrived here from my favorite Scrappin' Sista, Christel, then you are in the right place!!  If you've just popped in to visit my blog or are reading this via email and you'd like to join the FUN, then please CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Jearise's blog...

For the hop today, I'm sharing one of my favorite "All Boy" layouts!!
This layout features a few of my favorite things...  The background paper is from Creative Memories Discover Paper Pack.  I also used CM's brown and navy cardstock.  I cut the stars from the George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge and the title from the Old West Cricut Cartridge.  I also distressed some raw cardboard strips with SU!'s Chocolate Chip ink.  The silver star brads are from SU!, and the twine is from my stash.... 
This layout was originally inspired by my dear friend, Gloria of Girlia's Cards...  If you haven't seen my friend's amazing talent, I invite you to pop over and visit her (and let her know I sent ya!!)...  Gloria hadn't created a layout or a boy card to inspire me, but rather inspired me to make something lickety-split and QUICK...  I was able to finish this layout in under an hour!!  Every time I look at this layout now, I immediately think of my sweet friend and smile!! :)
The title was cut at 2" with the base layer from chipboard and the shadow from coordinating Discover paper.  I used the SU! Chocolate Chip ink to distress the letters...  I really love the Old West font!! :)
This stack of stars and paper scraps was the perfect embellishment to finish off the layout -- And I just LOVE using up scraps!! :)  Aren't the star brads and twine accents so FUN???
Before you go, I just want to remind you that our Hop Hostess, Jearise, will be picking one lucky person to receive a $10 gift card to Joann's Fabric and Craft!!  To be eligible to win, be sure to visit and comment on each hop stop...  Then, hop on back to let Jearise know you've finished (you'll surely want to be a follower at each blog too!)!!  Additionally, we have a very special sponsor on this hop: PSA Stamps -- The stamps are awesome...

I'm not going to lie, I love it. I love the colors and the way you layered it. We have a cowboy theme birthday party for my son a few years back and before I got into scrapping. Gee, I wish I had known you then. Thanks for being part of the hop. Jearise in Lorby's World.
