Strong Man - Scrapping Fun Kits DT

The wood veneer Strong in the Scrapping Fun Kits May Fundraising Kit was just the prompt I needed to pull out the photos from this wonderful night and record this story.

The paper from the kit was the perfect mat for drawing the eye to E as he was wearing a blue shirt.
I built my layers with a strip of the zebra tissue paper from the kit and this cute doodle paper from a Kaisercraft #Me 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad.  I also grabbed 2 borders from this paper pad and a die cut arrow and circle.  And for my background I used a sheet of Echo Park Soccer Words Paper.

I partially matted my ticket on a scrap of black cardstock to help it pop and give some protection to the rest of the layout if the acid and lignin in the ticket become a issue at a later date.

I adhered the sweatband he wore as part of his costume down with some Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive on the back.

I divided the Beautiful die cut from the cut apart in the May Fundraising Kit into 3 pieces and tucked it behind various layers in the layout.  It added just the right amount of blue to the right hand side of the page and some cute dimension.

The arrow from the 6x6 paper pad was a great way to ground the wood veneer from the kit, I also pointed it towards my son in the photo to draw the eye to him.

I love how this layout turned out.  The orange and blue worked really well together.
