Hey everyone, it’s Raquel Bowman here today and I am here sharing a “Throwback Thursday” layout. For today’s throwback I am delving into one of my fave boy collections from CVS called Boys Rule.

Here is the layout that I created to share with you today:  

I came across the featured photos on this layout while looking through a photo box I had in my craft room. I just wanted to document them immediately. These pics are of my little man when he was only a couple of years old. His little cheeky personality sure shines through with these photos and the Boys Rule collection was perfect to document them with. I also teamed my photos with a cut file from Cut to You – my fave place to buy cut files for my crafty pages. 

I used the 6×8” paper pad to back the clip board cut file binder clips. I also backed the clip boards in a combination of patterned papers and ephemera pieces to add layers and detail. 

As well as the clipboards framing the photos – stars were another repeating element to this page. I used the stars to embellish the page but also to support your eyes to go from the photos down to the title. The title of the page was fussy cut from the cut apart patterned paper. I added machine stitching through the title to allow it to stand out even more and add extra texture. 
I love that pop of aqua blue that the title brings to the page – I am so added some fussy cut stars and the banner ‘eat sleep and be rad’ – another cute element that compliments the rest of the layout design. 

The whole layout was matted in that black chalkboard style paper – to work well with the office theme of the page. To finish the layout and add texture to the page I used machine stitching. 

Thanks so much for stopping by the CVS blog today, I hope you found this Throwback Thursday post inspirational.
