Boys will be Boys: Real Life

Today I am up on the Paper Issues blog with a post for the Boys will be Boys challenge.
I paired Box of Crayons from Shimelle with the fun cut file A to Z from Paper Issues.

 I couldn't wait to document Ryan (my kindergartener's) school photos
 since we just wrapped up the school year.
  It is extra special to document these stories since
 I teach down the hall from him and I often come upon photo ops that make me laugh!

Box of Crayons has the perfect school vibe I was going for with this design.  My "Mr. Independent" Ryan insisted on wearing his brother's football jersey to school. He knew most shirts with words, "the words" go in the front, so of course his last name had to be front and center!

I added details to the story in the alphabet letters scattered throughout the page.
The black writing doesn't stick out lots unless you read it closely, 
but it helps add a subtle design connection with the pencils and crayons.

It ended up being the perfect match was Shimelle's Box of Crayons collection 
paired with the A to Z background cut file free from Paper Issues.  I scattered my alphabet connected journaling throughout the page design. 

I added some roller stamping and word strip stickers to the letters as well. 
My fave was NOPE for this epic fail of wearing his jersey backwards.  Here's the "nope"!

Thanks for stopping by today!
