Here is another layout where we are fixing our home. When we moved in there was no grass in the front yard. It had died from neglect. That was the biggest negative in considering whether we should buy the house. We had never redone a yard but read a lot about it on the internet and decided to order sod. We ended up ordering less than half the amount we actually needed. It took several days to till the yard, grade the dirt and layout the grass. It was so worth it! This layout uses the Basic Grey Pheobe collection again! I used a photo of the grass cut in half as the border on the bottom.
Check out the Basic grey site. Everytime you click on the Home link you can see a preview of one of their new collections. There are 2 that will be great for scrapbooking boys. One is archaic and the other is boxer. I cannot wait! Like I need more paper :-)
