The first layout of the year!

This is my first layout of the year, and the first project I've completed in over a month! I used pieces of my Counterfeit Kit, and my Cricut machine, and Accent Essentials cartridge to make the round embellishments. Because it was a boy's page, I really wanted to stay away from flowers. The shapes are perfect for the summer theme of this page, and I was able to match the colors of my other papers.

I was able to complete three different challenges with this layout. The weekly challenge at the LPS message board was to use something "new" on a page, and also to spell out the word "year" with products used on the page. I used "Y"ellow, Accent "E"ssentials Cricut cartridge, "A"ugust calendar card, and "R"ed or "R"estoration (Crate) to spell out my word. I used a sketch from Page Maps #2, to complete that challenge on LPS message board, as well. For the "Back to School" challenge on the Counterfeit Kit challenge, I watched the video on border stickers. I layered them behind my title on this page. I think it really set off my large title. Nothing like multi-tasking!!
