I must admit this is a labor intensive layout but I am so happy how it turned out. The photo is of my two sons at a local amusement park two summers ago. My oldest son is 30 and my youngest son is 15 so my youngest looks up to his older brother as an example and a mentor. I love it.
I used the new So Rad Collection by Simple Stories and this is the fourth layout with this collection and I had lots of scraps of paper so this type of layout is perfect to use up those scraps.
Of course my favorite embellishment is flair buttons so I added one from A Flair For Buttons.
I used my Silhouette Cameo and a cut file from the Silhouette Online Store to cut out the large stars in the white card stock and the smaller orange stars. I used my sewing machine to stitch around the larger stars on the white card stock.
Jillibean Soup has some wonderful wood buttons so I added those to the center of the orange stars.
Finally I added some Jillibean Soup little star enamel embellishments and some Heidi Swapp Colorshine "Tea" mist splatters. I felt the orange stars needed a little more pop so I got out my black pen and added some faux stitching.
This took up my evening last night but I always am happy to share my layouts with my sons and show them how special they are to me.
Thanks for looking and I hope you have an awesome day!
