I'm melting!

Maybe I am the wicked witch of the west, I can't take this heat. Forget wearing makeup or doing my soon as I go outside  *POOF* it's gone. The makeup slides off and my hair turns to frizz :(  With that said, I"m going to share my final layout from the Big Book of Scrapbook Pages".

I wanted to fill the chunk of white space in the middle of the layout , repeating the title in letter stickers was a fun solution! I was a little scared about cutting my title down the center but it worked!

The fishing pole is one of my first pieced creations. I drew, the pole and then created a pattern. The reel was a little tricky. Matthew helped by critiquing it several times for me :) Used Bazzill Glimmer  paper for parts of it and a really old Basic Grey too.

I'm always excited when I can get a lot of photos on a Page because I love them all!

Hand stitched the fishing line and used a real hook after filing off the barbs.

The blanket stitching on the right page over the patterned paper was an old Basic Grey rubon. I liked it so much that I blanket stitched around the entire layout! You can't see it in these photos but there is a tab on the left that pulls out and my journaling is there. I love how this one turned out :)

Matthew and I are off to find size 16 shoes for football camp this weekend, wish me luck!

That fishing pole is AMAZING! You did a great job with it ... I was think it was cut out with a cricut or something :)
