I was very fortunate to be given a range of the Kaisercraft Attitude papers - SO PERFECT for the ages of my boys - 14, 13 and 10 !!!
Thanks Tracy at My2angels

I also have a bit of a love affair with Crafters workshop templates and Tracy has such a fabulous range of them in store!!! One of the things I love to do is mix up my templates - so in this layout I have used the chicken wire template and some glimmer mist to create additional pattern on the background paper. The patterned paper is
Attitude! Dude a nice neutral grey & white background

I then grabbed my small 6 x 6 inch gears template (but you could use a larger one in smaller sections as well) and used light grey ink like Stazon Dove Grey to create some random inked areas for added depth of pattern.
This gives me a cool background to work with.

I love the sticker sheet that comes with this paper range and I decided to use some of them clustered with some torn bits of paper from this fabulous range!! ...I also like how Kaiser have given you a little bonus with the cut off piece at the end of the sheet of paper - you can trim this off and use this too - you can see I have used a couple of these!!!

Once I clustered my strips and stickers, I placed my photo on a slight angle - and then added some of the funky stickers from the sticker sheet -

... as well as one of my favorite my2angels charms - silver camera charms!! LOVE it!!

I also added one of the 100% boy pins that Tracy makes ( SO COOL to have great boy embellishments!!!).

I also like to doodle on my boys layouts - it adds that little bit extra - I even outlined the photo..... and then I added some doodles, edging and stitches - just with a black sharpie pen!!!

I know these papers have sold quickly, because they are such a great range for boys, but I know Tracy is getting more in - so take a look and see what she has !!!
