Scrap the Boys !!

Every month they manage to do it - come up with some cool new concept that makes me say I wanna do that here we are. The challenge was to be inspired by the quote " Real men dont each quiche" so scrap somehting a bit feminine about your boys - liking pink, flowers, etc I had these photos of Teleah doing the boys hair a couple of months back and thought they fit the bill perfectly.....I used gorgeous Making Memories 5th avenue papers.....
