4th of July Layout for CTMH Challenge
I'm taking a break today from posting my parents album to post a layout I made for a challenge. I am a part of a Close to My Heart club and our wonderful consultant Lori put out a challenge to make something to show American Pride. It had to feature Close to My Heart products, but other products could be used as well. These pictures are from July 4th, 2008. (Yes, I'm horribly behind on my scrapbooking!) My parents came over for the 4th and brought my two boys water guns. My dad went outside and had a water gun fight with them. It was a great day this was a perfect excuse to scrapbook those pics I had been needing to scrap!!
On to the layout. All of the papers used are from the Blue Ribbon Level two paper pack from CTMH. The base cardstock was Indian Corn Blue and the picture mats were Outdoor Denim which I inked with a silver Cat's Eye ink. For the accent papers, I cut the red speckled paper at 7", the striped paper at 6 1/2" and the paper with words (I love that paper) at 5 1/2 inches. The bunting across the top was from the cricut Independence Day seasonal mini and cut at 2 1/2" using Colonial White, Outdoor Denim, and Cranberry cardstock. The 4th of July was cut at 4" with red glitter cardstock and the firecracker was cut at 2" and were also from the Independence Day cart. For the journal tag I cut one of the seal cuts from Independence Day at 3 1/2" but I left out the center that is blue with stars. I stamped a journal stamp from the Frame of Mind set in Outdoor Denim. The boy cuts are from A Child's Year ( I love that old pedal car!). I cut the boy in the car at 3 1/2 " in Cranberry with an Dark blue shadow and the boy on the rocket was cut at 2 1/2".
Thanks for looking!! I had not had a chance to post this until today, but I found out that I won the challenge!! I hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July!
