If you were going to make an 8x8 mini for someone at work, what boy themed paper line/pack would you suggest?

Im not really feeling the traditional blue/yellow/duckies/teddy bears stuff, but I dont really know if she'd like earth tones/greens/frogs...or earth tones/dinos either!

Ideas, hints, suggestions? Thanks!

Off to search the gallery too!

I don't know when it will be available, but Prima's new "Pixie Glen" line looks like it will be nice for baby boy projects.

I am doing an album for someone at work also and I am using a collection from Webster's Pages. Sorry I can't think of which one off hand. I really like their collections for baby anything right now because I am a little tired of the usual myself.

What about the bo bunny line - Blast off collection. Or I have been doing gears a lot with my little boy.

I just bought the entire Fancy Pants Baby Mine line to do a book for a friend of mine with a little boy. I love the little monkeys that are in the collection - so cute!

I second the Basic Grey Oliver line--great boy colors without being babyish, but some of the embellies (specifically the colored rubons) have things that relate to babies. Echo Park's Little Boy is also a good choice.

I just finished an 8x8 album for a baby boy and used K & Co. Itsy Bitsy paper. I thought it was really cute- though definitely traditional baby stuff.

The Teresa Collins On the Edge collection is super cool. Very rock & roll! Her Chic Baby Boy collection is cute too, and a little more traditional. I used the Chic Baby Girl collection for a mini album and it turned out great-- pics are in my gallery.

THAt is cute!

I asked in a general way about what theme she likes without giving it away what I was doing...she said earth tones and frogs, so that gives me a start on colors at least! LOL

Off to check the Superstore and HL for packs!

Thanks for all the suggestions guys, I hardly ever do a baby LO or mini so I was stumped!

I did my third son's book, he was my last boy...after two others, I was SICK of baby blue!!!! I did him a mini 8X8 album of him in the NICU (he was a 26 week preemie). I did the whole book in black and white, I love it!!!! It really made the pictures stand out!!!!
