Alice has done some wonderful things for boys - like Daniel, and I love that one in particular. I may get it for winter, but I used her mini kit for for my bedtime page. Forever in blue jeans is wonderful, but it is full of beads and flowers and a doodly frame - very girly. The fish ones are also adorable, but it is too young for a rumble-tumble 2 year old or older boy. I've seen them all, and although they are extremely nice, they just don't fit many elements that I see in a little boy's real life. Soon enough will come Cub Scouts, Little League, and so forth. What about kid's music? I loved Andrea's kit, but it really isn't suitable for small children's musical things. School books and backpacks littered my kid's rooms. I think the Choo choo stickers are wonderful, and I may get those! Airplanes! Another thing that little boys love, but not cutsey things with smiling faces on them past two y. o. Some of us live in the deep south, and we don't have piney forests like the Pacific Northwest, so I can't go the lumberjack route. We have palm trees, and the ocean, and alligators; the sun and bright colorful days. No snow, thank goodness. Doing a family Christmas album without the tired (no, I didn't mean tried) and true winter stuff is a nightmare for us here in the south, where we celebrate with firecrackers!
I dunno - maybe I'm being too picky; I'm very frustrated since it often takes me days to make elements that don't exist in kits I see. I don't even upload a lot of it, because some of my things have been not just scraplifted, but taken by people who claimed them as their own. That happened too many times on another site, so I don't go there any more.
That's just how I see it.
Proudly CT Scrapping for Helen!
