  1. Place the color block paper with the lime block on the left. Double-mat a 5"x7" photo on white cardstock, trimming each mat to 1/8". Mat again on lime cardstock, leaving the right edge unglued, and trim to 1/8". Glue the photo over the left side of the dark blue color block and add three yellow brads across the top of the photo.
  2. Computer journal a vertical block onto white cardstock. Ink the edges of the journaling and glue it with the left edge tucked under the unglued right edge of the photo mat. Finish gluing the edge of the mat, then add two blue mini brads to the right corners of the journaling.
  3. Punch out green monograms to spell “frog” and glue them down the left side of the page. Accent each letter with three yellow and blue mini brads.
  4. Attach two frog Brad Buddies™ across the light blue color block with black mini brads. Use a black pen to draw a wavy trail of polka dots across the light blue color block. Write “our” and “boy” around the monograms to complete the page title.

A tip from LeNae: When adding brads to monograms with thin edges, I find it easiest to attach the monograms to my project, then add my brads. This way I don't have to worry about the brad prongs peeking out from behind the monogram, and I don't have to deal with the difficulty of trying to glue the monogram to my page with the prongs on the back. After gluing your monograms to your page, just punch or cut a small hole through both the monogram and paper layers, then insert the brad and open the prongs on the back side of the paper.
