Hello, Maja Fans, welcome to our blog today 🙂

It’s Maja here with a layout to share. Last year during a routine check at the doctor’s we discovered our elder son needed glasses. I remembered that during my childhood kids wearing glasses had rather tough life at school – but luckily now that changed and glasses can even make your more popular LOL Besides, I do think he looks great wearing them, doesn’t he? 🙂

mdadorableThe inspiration for the colour palette came from the great combo of blue-green-creme and brown in the striped design of the Bulle m. blĂĄbär sheet from the Ska vi ta en fika? collection. I matted it with the Winter joy paper and topped with the Julstämning sheet – yes, that’s right, I used winter-Christmas papers for this layout 🙂 Then I sprayed some mists over the paper and stamped the faux stitching:

mdadorable1mdadorable2Could I do without flowers? Of course not! And here’s the cluster in matching colours. I also added the owl charm, as the bird looks so much as if wearing glasses 🙂

mdadorable4Other embellies include the butterfly button, chipboard star-shaped buttons and the die-cut title:


Maja Design papers: Vintage Winter: Winter Joy, Ska Vi Ta En Fika?: , Gammaldags Jul: Julstämning bs. Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; die: Kesi’art; stamp: Prima, chipboard: Scrapiniec; button: Lemoncraft; charm: my stash.

Have a very nice day and drop by tomorrow for some more inspiration from our DT 🙂

    Beautiful layout Maja. I think your son is very handsome with his glasses. Yes, my 12 year old son has them too (seems to be the norm now). I also love that you included flowers on a ‘boy’ layout. I think they look great!

  • Oh my goodness, your son is so very adorable! My son had to wear glasses from about the 5th or 6th grade on – now he wears contacts. The page is just a lovely and happy page and the papers, of course, are beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
