Heroes Layout

Due to my husband's love of airplanes, I have scrapbooked many  pictures of flight museums and airshows, so I was pondering what to do to make this one different. Then I saw the color challenge over at Annabelle Stamps and thought it would be a great combo for these photos. Here's the color combo, and I used Close To My Heart's Grey Wool, Pacifica, and Olive:

I also used a challenge from Scrap It With a Song (be inspired by David Bowies' song "Heroes") to come up with my title, and the sketch is from Let's Scrap. One final challenge helped me move some stuff out of my stash: use eyelets, from Paper Secrets. I certainly needed that one, 'cause the eyelets weren't exactly flying out the door! Even though I probably won't "win" any challenges for this layout, I had so much fun playing along.


Recipe:

This is a fabulous layout! I too have an aviator guy and I know what a challenge it can be to come up with something "different". You did a super job on this one ... love the colors and star banner!
