Sweet Child O’Mine

Good morning, dear Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today 🙂

I’m sorry to dissapoint you if you expected some good ol’ rock now – even though I love that Guns’n’Roses’ classic, this post is going to be about a true sweet child of mine 😉

Going through some photos I took just two years ago I’ve been shocked to see how my eldest boy has changed! He’s no longer a sweet kiddo, and although he’s a sweet young man now I still miss that little boy of whom I thought “He’s so big now” while taking that photo… And to embrace the sweetness theme of the layout, I used the Denim&Girls collection to make this layout 🙂

I used scraps of various papers to mat the photo and to hand-cut some tags and banners to decorate it. I added flowers, acrylic gems, sequins and clay embellishments to complete my design. The title is composed of various golden foam letters – I used up some leftovers and added visual interest to the words as well 🙂

As you can see, you can make a boy page using pink papers of a girly collection too 😉 What do you think?

Here are my supplies:

Other: letters: American Crafts; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; button: Lemoncraft; sequins, gems, clay elements: my stash.

  • Oh Maja, what a gorgeous page of your adorable son here. I agree, it just goes way too fast with them growing up, and suddenly they´re just adults LOL. Never managed to find out how it happened to all my 3 boys either ha ha ha.
    But your fabulous layouts will keep these amazing memories alive forever,, and this one is just fabulous and stunning in every detail as always. You are such a talented lady, and I admire your work imensly. Stunning work once again, well done.
