When I saw the Tim Holtz Grungeboard letters at A.C. Moore (on sale for 50% off!!) I knew I had to do a layout with a simple title so that I could use a really BIG letter. That day, I went to one of Mark's track meets. As I watched him run hurdles, this layout came together in my head. It shows a series of photographs of Mark running the hurdles. (It just so happened that this week's challenge at Sisterhood of Scrap http://sisterhoodofscrap.blogspot.com/2008/08/challenge-monday-august-1808.html called for creating a layout with a sequence of photos.) Here's my layout:
Just a note...I didn't have any ribbon in my stash to match this layout so I died my own ribbon by running it across my ink pad. After I got the right color, I set it aside to dry before putting it on the layout. I did the same for the Grungeboard letters.
Ingredients: Patterned Paper -- Adornit Running Collection; Tim Holtz Grungeboard Stripes Alphas; Stampin Up! Night of Navy ink and marker; Nicole light blue ribbon; journaling stamp from my stash.
