Class Picnic Layout

Hi ~ Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway!!

I am excited to be here at She's A Sassy Lady with a 2 page layout I created BEFORE I broke my right wrist.

Tanner's Kindergarten class picnic was held at our neighborhood park the last Thursday of the school year.  Tanner played soccer, football and baseball with his friends.  I wanted to capture this special day for him.

Of course, I started with my Gypsy:

I found the soccer players from Sports Mania and sized them to 2.08 inches.

I found the grass from A Child's Year and sized them to 2.85 inches.  I ended up cutting two sets.

I grabbed the sign from Street Sign and sized it (and the layers) to 3.16 inches.
I used letters also from Street Sign to spell out PARK sized to 1 inch.
I found the swingset and slide from Pop-Up Neighborhood sized to 1.77 inches.

I used the font from Nate's ABC's sized at 1.56 inches.

I opened up another layer and grouped the green cuts all together.

I opened another layer in order to group the rest of the cuts by color.  I cut everything out of cardstock.

I pop-dotted the grass cuts over the photos and park sign.

I used my Cricut Imagine and the Hopscotch cartridge to print the cloud paper.  I printed one 12x12 sheet and cut it in half - one for each page.

I crinkled up some creme colored cardstock and inked it to look like sand.  I put the swingset and slide in the sand.

I did not use the shadow layer for the title because I cut the wrong shade of blue.  I liked it better without a shadow, so I left it.

I journaled on a cloud.
I have been trying to use more than one patterned papers in my layouts - I am still not comfortable with this!!!  I used a string of green twine to separate the sky from the polka dotted grass.

Thanks so much Sheila for having me over today!!!
