This was a fun layout to put together. I used a sketch based on a layout by Suzy Plantamura on page 71 of the March / April 2011 issue of Creating Keepsakes.
Both pages together...
The border stamped around the page is a little sneak peek at one of the images in the Close To My Heart August Stamp Of The Month set. To lighten it up some, I stamped a little splot from the CTMH Enjoy Life set. I really like the effect of this. They almost look like water drops. Very Cool!
Zane didn't like how I tore the paper. He said "Oh No, you ripped your paper". Of course I had to enlighten him that it was meant to be that way!
The stars are from the Close To My Heart July Stamp of the Month set. If you haven't checked it out yet, it is a very fun set full of images to celebrate 4th of July! I am sure you will see the stars show up on some sports layouts in the future. I used my trusty black sharpie and drew a black line around them, then added a few stickle dots to give them some pop on all this busy paper.
I hope you enjoyed my creation today! Enjoy the rest your weekend.
