Strike a "SOCCER" Pose!

One thing about having a boy, sometimes when I want to use papers, I feel I am a little at a disadvantage. It's easy to find papers for girls, super duper easy...and it's even super easy to find papers for little boys, but to find papers to use for a tween boy, it can be a challenge.
So...when I went to get down to business this month for my blog post, I thought I would choose a typically girl line and shake it up a bit and do a real boy page. I mean how girly can a line called "Vogue" be?  with names like, Fashionista, Strike a Pose & Diva, I had my doubts. Well, it turns out, it's much more versitle that it sounds!
Vogue is a gorgeous line, I love the deep green and navy blue contrast and the patterns are to die for! Check out these papers...
 Absolutely stunning, and the page with sayings, journal spots etc is just the icing on the cake. I was able to find a great quote that totally fit in with my page!




So there you have it, not all papers are what they seem, try something new, out of the box and you'll be surprised with what you come up with...

STRIKE A POSE!

I totally agree with you about the boy/teen papers issue. Green and blue are my go to colours though so this really is an issue and you've made a great layout with them.
