Little Dude

Hello blog friends !!!
As you might have noticed during the past few weeks , I love using PageMaps sketches !!! They are celebrating their 7th anniversary and  have great challenges with amazing prizes :) Go check them out HERE .
This challenge is to use a girly sketch and convert it to a more boy friendly sketch. I changed the flowers into stars and the flourishes into banners and even used a more girly Fancy Pants collection (Trend Setter) on my layout of my son Gabriel.
Little Dude

Here's the sketch from PageMaps.
