Game On!

We had the most wonderful time on vacation…our first vacation in four years! We got some much needed time to sit back, relax, and enjoy creating some wonderful memories with family!!

My July kit from Shawn Davis Designs contained papers from My Minds Eye Lime Twist. The patterns and colors were perfect for some of my son’s football photos!

I sanded the edges of the larger photo for a bit of texture and masculinity. The smaller photo was layered and attached with foam dots, as well as some stars cut from the pattern paper adding dimension and texture to the layout.

Using my Cricut Expression and Life’s a Party Cartridge, I created the Star/flourish. I added Ranger Crackle Accents to the center of the flourish, adding to the masculine feel of the layout.

I layered a Spellbinders die, hand cut banner, and some stickers to create my title.

Thanks for stopping!!
