Good morning! I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day. Today is the day to remember not only those who have served our country and have given the ultimate sacrifice, but all of our loved ones who can no longer be with us...those that were and are heroes to us in their own ways. :)
A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself ~ Joseph Campbell
Today over at My Creative Time, it's time for another Scrappy Monday Layout Challenge! Emma is challenging us to create only layouts. For this challenge, there are only a couple simple requirements:
~ use only one picture ~
~ incorporate buttons on your project ~
And so here is the layout that I came up with! In honor of memorial day, I decided to go with a patriotic theme.
This is my most favoritest picture of my two boys! Of course it was taken a LONG time ago, since my kiddos are now 12 and 10. But it's still and always will be my favorite.
I created the title within the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition using a font installed on my computer. I LOVE the fact that we can cut any true type fonts that we already have. :) I used the polygon tool to create the stars and then used the internal offset to create the smaller layers. I welded the words and stars together and then used the offset feature to create the shadow border. I also created the tabbed photo mat and it's layers, that I saw online a while back, but I can't for the life of me remember where. :)
