first love...

I have mentioned before about the sweet friendship between my eldest and his best friend Kate. They simply adore each other, he is so soft and tender towards her and misses her so much when he doesn't see her for a while.
I took advantage of the gorgeous Picadilly line from Basic Grey that is just hitting the stores now to create my layout. The colours and patterns are soft and feminine but not too much that you can't include them on a boys page
For my layout I used the 6x6 pack of pattern papers to  create my quilt like background...
Till next time...
