Mix it up!

Good morning everyone!  I'm here today sharing my last layout for my stint as design team member for Lori Brown's CTMH team.  I had so much fun being part of this great team, but as they say all good things must come to an end.  This month I decided to mix it up a bit....after all it's a New Year, so for this layout I used a mix of papers from different lines.  Here is my layout:
Supplies Used: Cardstock: Basic Grey; Patterned Paper: CTMH Tommy, Surf's Up & Pro Player;
chipboard: Basic Grey Hey Boy; star: CTMH Pro Player; stamp: CTMH Pro Player 
scrapbooking kit; ink: Night of Navy by Stampin Up; quote tag: My Mind's Eye;
journaling tag: Chic Tags; punches: Stampin Up; letters: rub ons by Making Memories.

I was able to mix three wonderful lines from CTMH : Tommy and ProPlayer, which are two awesome masculine lines and the third line Surf's Up, which is retired.  I was also able to use up a few embellishments from my stash which I thought coordinated great with these lines, the quote from My Mind's Eye I had had in my stash for years, plus I used up some chipboard embellishments from Basic Grey as well as some really old rub on letters.  I do like the look of rub ons, but they are a bit hard to work with when you haven't had practice with them for a while.  This is one of my favorite pictures of my son at 4, I just love his smile in this picture and it is fun to see him in a suit and tie, since nowadays he would NEVER let himself be caught wearing a suit and tie!!!  How times change! lol!  If you are looking for some fun new products or any masculine papers I would highly recommend either of these lines (ProPlayer or Tommy).   If you are so inclined to do some shopping then don't forget to visit Lori's CTMH store and click on the link Lisa's My Creative Endeavors sent me!  Happy crafting!
