I will be back with more to share very soon!

It's a boy thing....

Hello!

Just a quick share today, Imaginarium and Pion together in this cute layout loaded with chipboard negatives! I am sure I am not the only one to save every single bit of chipboard when I am creating.
And I have a big fondness for banners!!! So I decided to create a fun banner out of chipboard negatives! Well the chipboards do come with the negatives right? so I guess they have to be used too!
All the chipboards on this layout are RAW with a slight lick of Walnut Stain Distress ink on their edges.
