Together Layout

With July 4th just past, there are a lot of red, white and blue crafting challenges floating around. I didn't have any July 4th photos so I grabbed a picture with those colors and started scrapping. The background of the photo was really distracting (can anyone say lawnmower?) so I tried a new-to-me technique; I converted the background to black and white while keeping the people in color. I also played along with a few other challenges, so be sure to check them out at the bottom of this post.
Recipe:
Just Be You stamp set
Ruby, Outdoor Denim, Kraft & Colonial White cardstock
Ruby, Outdoor Denim & Desert Sand ink
Outdoor Denim marker
Colonial White brads
Ruby chevron ribbon
Enamel stars
3-D foam tape
Cricut Artiste cartridge: title, stars
Cuttlebug embossing folders: CTMH Stripe, Swiss Dot
Pattern: Stick It Down July single page sketch
Challenges: Color My Heart Ruby, Outdoor Denim, Kraft & Colonial White color challenge; Frosted Designs Red, White & Blue with a Twist (my "something old" is all the product and my "something new" is the technique of recoloring a photo); Picture This Red, White, & Blue + 1-2 photos + stars; Rochelle Spears July tic-tac-toe (I chose the column with brads, stars & striped paper); Lasting Memories Together theme

The page design draws your eye straight to the photo and it helps that you've converted the background to black and white. How'd you do that? Thanks for joining us at SID:)
