Creative Blog Challenge: Let's Hear It for the Boys!

Time for a new challenge theme! We usually do so many themes with women and flowers and little girls... this time it's something different: Let's Hear It For The BOYS. I'm the mother of two boys myself, so I'm all for that.

Your project should focus on boys. Take a look at my Lunagirl shop for boys on digital collage sheets and more on CD, and don't miss the Design Team inspiration below! (My challenge banner uses frames from my Victorian Vintage Blank Labels CD plus vintage boys from my digital collage sheets.)

Here are the challenge guidelines:

  • Any craft or medium is OK.
  • Limit of 3 entries from one person in each challenge, please.
  • Vintage style is encouraged.
  • Use a Lunagirl image or element and your entry will count twice in the drawing!
  • Remember to link to this blog and to on your site if you have one.
  • Prize:  The winner will be selected randomly, to receive a Lunagirl collage sheet CD of your choice! ($25 value).
  • Challenge ends at noon CST on August 31.

  • Of course I love if you use at least one product, and I hope you'll go take a look at my collection... but that's not a requirement. However, remember that if you use a Lunagirl image, you will be entered TWICE in the drawing! I want to welcome everyone and every style but also give a little something extra to my wonderful customers! 



    To get you started, here is an adorable little guy on a bookmark created by Michele Storms, perfect for our boys-themed challenge and also for Back-to-School Time!

    Michele writes:
    as the mom of one child, a son, i love being challenged to deliver up some good things featuring boys.  i made a bookmark on the "back to school" theme since that time is right around the corner.  i used an image from your african american CD and the rainbow butterflies sheet (because boys can take flight too of course -- and truly learning gives you wings!)  the rest is stuff from my stash.

    Here's another adorable little guy on this arch created by MANDY CHILVERS. I love the aged look and muted colors. (Little boy photo from Little Boys Photos.)

    Here he is again on a tag by Vicki Romaine! I love the vintage style of this one, with the sepia and copper colors. 

    Vicki writes:
    My tag has a page from an old paperback book as a background base.  The  Lunagirl image was placed under wrapped vintage twine. Down the left side is a piece of shinny cooper-looking cardstock cut from an old Christmas card. At the top is a medallion piece that had been smashed in a coin-smashing machine


    1. Great design team samples. Thanks for the "for the boys" challenge this week. It will be fun to play!
