I want to start by telling you who Cade and Caleb are, and the inspiration for these two frames. Cade and Caleb are my cousin Averi's two sons. Cade is 2 1/2 and Caleb is almost 1 month old. I wanted to make something special and personal for baby Caleb, however I didn't want to leave big brother Cade out. So, I sent Averi an e-mail asking for pictures of the boys rooms. Well when I went through the pictures it made it apparent what the themes would be for their frames. Cade's room is decorated in airplanes and different shades of blue. Sweet Caleb's nursery is decorated in bright colors, brown, and white, with the alphabet, and jungle animals.
Cade's room reminds me of an airshow, so I wanted to make the background of the frame to look like the sky. I chose baby blue to paint the frame, and I chose to accent with different shades of blue and white, and of course add an airplane.
"God created boys full of spirit and fun, to explore and conquer, to romp and run."
This was the quote I put on Cade's frame, I thought it was very fitting for such a little boy who was full of sweetness but still a boy all the way through.
Caleb's room reminds me of a jungle theme somewhat, but more toned down. So I wanted to add jungle animals but not go crazy. I chose to paint the frame brown and accent with baby blue, and a few touches of bright colors here and there.
To me the ribbon is what helped tie the whole frame together. I love ribbon and I pretty much use it on all of my crafting projects; clipboards, frames, wall hooks, cards, scrapbooking. The lion I found at Hobby Lobby, and I knew I had to somehow incorporate him.
When we had Rylan my friend Danielle brought us dinner, and gave us a card with a verse I will never forget. Every chance I get to include this verse so dear to me I do. Thanks Danielle!
