For the Guys! :)

Welcome to week 37 at The Paper Variety!
Wow! June, for most of the US, has really brought on the heat, hasn't it?! It's been nearly 100 degrees all week in my area of Illinois. But thankfully we'll have a short break as the next few days are expected to be in the 80s. Whew!

Let's get right to our challenge!

We are so delighted to welcome back
Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker
as our sponsor this week! Personally, I LOVE ALL of the Nikki Sivils collections and I own several of them. Nikki's designs are so very fun with vibrant colors and the cutest images! Nikki Sivils has kindly donated this "Blueberry Hill" collection to our lucky TPV winner!

Be sure to join us Friday when we share more about Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker!

Need a little push to get scrappy?
Check out these masculine projects from our TPV DT! :)

SuzyI rarely create a masculine project! So this is the best result I can get and I love it! This card will go to my hubby on father's day hope he'll love it :D

It was a long time, that I wanted to create a pirate scrapbook layout. So, I took the chance with this awesome masculine / boy challenge to scrap these photos. My boy is at the "Bounty" ship, that was stationed at San Juan's port last winter season. The "Bounty" was one of the ships used to film Pirate of the Caribbean movies II and III. I used doilies and flourishes for this boy layout since they resembled to me the ship steering wheel and sea waves.

AmyWhat's more masculine than camo and guns?? Having 3 boys, this challenge was pretty easy for me! Papers are from American Crafts "Campy" line and the layout is loosely based on a Sketch Support sketch.

AprilThis challenge gave me the perfect opportunity to make a Father's Day card for my hubby! Hopefully he'll love it. ;)

AbbyTomorrow is my son's 12th birthday (where has the time gone!?) so I made him this fun birthday card. I'm not sure if you can tell in the photo, but I gave the number 12 circles dimension by adding popdots :)

Now it's your turn!
Who is your special guy? Your hubby, your son, your best friend, your brother, your father, your......? Join us and create a masculine project about him or for him.
