Only a few more days!!

That’s all you have to get in your submissions for the Boy oh Boy challenge this month! I don’t know about you, but June has flown by for us! Summer is in full swing and we are busy, busy, busy! We hope that you will have some time to sit down this weekend and scrapbook a boy layout. Then be sure to leave a comment with a link to your work. Remember you have until midnight on Tuesday, June 30th!

Here is a little peek at the prize in store for this month!

Warning: Enabler Alert!

Since our challenge this month is all about the boys, we wanted to share a few fun scrapbooking products that are out right now. I don’t know about you, but for these Real Life Girls it is a lot easier for us to buy girly products than it is the more masculine stuff - especially since we both had baby girls last year and we can finally justify putting pink on our pages now.  But don’t worry, there are plenty of cute items out there that will make you want to spend your entire scrapbooking budget on the guys in your life.  So without further ado, here are a few of the favorites that caught our eye…   

Warning:  There is a lot of pleasant eye candy coming up!!

This is a popular one.  There have been several of these papers show up in our gallery this month.

The best part about these kits is that they are available as paper or digital.

Here is a little inspiration for you with a layout that Jamie made from this digi kit…

Happy Weekend!
