Saturday scrapping: For the nephew

So during my bouts of night scrapping, I decided to put together a 6x6 mini album for my sister-in-law's little boy.  Since he looked like he's going to grow up to be one active, adventurous fellow, I used a whole bunch of boy-themed papers from Echo Park, and smushed them together.

Here's the back:

And one of my favourite patterned papers inside:

And the cover, which was done using stickers (from the same Echo Park collection), foam dots and pop pop popping:

Can you spot the washi tapes?
There's this washi tape craze going about in certain scrapbook circles and I can understand why.  Its remarkably versatile!

The hubby saw the album and asked "how come you don't do these boyish ones for our boys?".  Guess I am partial to flowers and butterflies, and can't help adding them to stuff I do for my own kids... after all, I can't keep saving those in the hope that we will get a girl next time right?  Heehee.  But I must say, boyish stuff can be quite fun to make too!
