Geography Bee

Seth tried out for the Geography Bee team every year in elementary school. Finally, in 5th Grade, his final year there, he made the team and he was thrilled!!! He was over the moon with excitement when his team won!

Of course, Mom couldn't wait to get his photos scrapped. Here's his layout...

I knew as soon as I saw the new 4x4 Globe Die that it would work perfectly for this layout! I chose the Blue Sky font, since it was large, and incorporated the Globe into the title. By creating a large title, I was able to use less embellishments and keep the focus on the photos and the meaning of the layout. After placing my title and photos, I hand journaled...something I don't do enough...then added a small Ric Rac border. For a final touch, I cut the trophy from the new 4x4 Awards Die then colored over it with my gold Copic Spica Glitter pen. I used all American Crafts cardstock for my die cut elements. I LOVE how clean it cuts and my die cuts don't peel or fall apart after they've been cut.

I'm still in Atlanta now and am making a pit stop in Mississippi on my way home to pick up my mom. She is coming to visit for about a month. I hope you all have a great weekend! Thanks for stoppin' by!
