I have never made a layout before, but I had to do this as part of my design certification course. I had to use all the digital papers I designed in my set to make sure they worked well together. I had asked DH what he thought of my paper set and he said they were nice, but girly. With this LO I set out to prove him wrong! (except I couldn't resist adding the flower! Lol!) I am happy with how masculine this layout turned out and am very happy with the cohesion of my kit. TYFL!
