All American Boy Layout


I created this layout to meet a few different challenges. One is for the Scrappin n Chattin group I belong to and the other is for the Lasting Memories challenge. I used a tan sheet of cardstock for the base. I punched a lacy border in white cardstock and a bubbles border n dark blue cardstock. I used Thickers for the red glitter letters and they are hard to see but cut out the American with Lyrical Letters on the Cricut then ran them through the Xyron X and glittered them. I made them too dark though so they don't stand out very well on my starry paper background. The star paper is from Creative Imaginations. Finally I cut out stars with the Cricut George cartridge then pierced holes and stung thread through them. I saw a layout like this in the Scrapbook trends magazine this month and wanted to try it. The photo is a picture of Will wearing his Uncle Sam hat that he wears every year for the 4th of July parade. Thanks for looking.
