I made this using a Basic Grey black chipboard album "Ethan's Album". I used up a bunch of my boy stuff that I don't ever use because I have a girl! :)

So it was fun and a bit challenging restraining myself from frilling up this one with lace and bling.

Of course I had to get a flower in here and there. lol But I think I accomplished the "play down" tactic by adding some green buttons and chunkier ribbon to tie on the button center.

I used an overload of My Minds Eye that I have had for a long while and got all of them through PeachyCheap: tags, rubons, and die cut titles.

This baseball cap die cut came w/the package as well.

For the tags I put some of the die cut tags back to back and a few I put patterned paper on the back. And of course I inked and distressed all of the edges of the embelishments to make it all pop.
I really like the way it turned out and hope that
my friend will enjoy it for her new baby boy! :) Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
