Jenny's TRUE Man of the House Reveal

Where do you find scrappy inspiration? I found some while scrolling through some handmade goodies over at Etsy. Can you find which of my June layouts was inspired by this little stationary set? You may even find a little inspiration here today as I share my Man of the House projects with you.

Happy Friday Simply Obsessed Fans! As soon as I received my June Man of the House kit, my mind began to churn. I don't get a lot of time to sit down and scrap with my hubby deployed overseas and me being the only caregiver to our 5 kids. So, whenever I can, I think scrapbooking. I tossed around the thought to use this kit to document my current "Man of the House". He's 2 inches shorter than me and 9 years old. But, I figured I do enough pages about P.J., and as hard as it may be emotionally, I thought I should celebrate my hubby Patrick. While he may not be here very often, he is still The Man.

The first two layouts are photos my hubby sent me from the Ike just weeks ago. They recently made a port call in Dubai, and like any good hubby of an avid/rabid scrapbooker would do, he took pictures for me. I love that he gets me. Warts and all.

Lots of layered circles and stars. It was all spurred by that large dot patterened paper. Love it. So many possibilities!

This next one was inspired by the chipboard sheet. The Badda Bings chipboard was my favorite element of the whole kit. I just had to use lots of thoses yummies. So, I created a little border utilizing them and some of the Basic Grey gummies and the Bo Bunny Buttons & Bling with some pieces handcut from one of the other pp's.

For this last one, I chose the photos that represented family. Besides being a wonderful kit to celebrate the men in your life, it also works perfectly to rejoice in your family as a whole. Love this one...

Check back tomorrow for another fabulous Man of the House Reveal!
