Ribbon Palooza

My Ribbon Palooza layout is up over at If It's Groovy!

I have been wanting to do a page using hexagons for a while now! Back in January IIG DT Member, Heather posted a sketch that I used for my layout! Thanks Heather for the great sketch! So, "One of the BOYS, now!" page was a fun event that had my husband and I smiling from the second we "try it" until dinner that night! My son needed a bike helmet, his 1st bike helmet mind you. "The Boys" aka his cousin and neighborhood boys are always riding their bikes around our house. My son, Luke is always right behind them! Monkey see monkey do type thing. So, we get out to buy a helmet and as soon as it is clipped on. It never came off! Through the store Luke wore his new helmet. At the cashier counter he would not take it off. Into the truck for the ride home. He sat all proud in his car seat with his helmet. So, I had to get a shot of him in the car seat when we finally got home. Luke was telling me holding up one finger, "One da Boys!"

I used papers from a Close to my Heart pack called, Fanfare. Cut out a large Hexagon and smaller ones using the Accent Essentials cartridge on the Cricut. Choose a Ribbon Palooza in coordinating colors.

Popped up my photos using Foam tape and added my title with glitter foam alphabets. On the yellow hexagon the white glitter didn't show up as well so I outlined those with a red glitter pen.V
