More Flags, More Fun! Six Flags Scrapbook Layout

Did you ever finish a layout and you were just tickled pink at how an element turned out?  I love how the Six Flag logo worked here - it is even better than I imagined!  I found the true-type font equivalent for the Six Flags logo by googling and was lucky to find a free download of it to cut with my Silhouette.

The open spot is for journaling which I will add later.  Here is a close-up of the sign:

The new American Crafts Dear Lizzy line patterned paper was perfect for my Six Flags Scrapbook Layout because the little pennant flags are oh-so-Six-Flags, no?  I couldn't help myself from adding the 'More Flags, More Fun' title.  The colors complemented the photos well too and I love how they help move your eye accross the page.  The only problem I had was there were no black flags, just dark brown and I really wanted to tie the flag paper into the layout title, so I colored in some of the dark brown flags with a black marker, then added some black stickles glitter glue to hide the marker lines.  It worked perfectly because some of the other flags were already glittered.  You can find the Dear Lizzy line at Scrap-Mart.com of course!

To make the flags, I simply cut some of the pennants out of the patterned paper, added some embossing glue to six toothpicks and rolled those into white American Crafts Zing embossing powder.  I raised up the Six Flags title with pop-dots to allow my toothpicks to be secured to the back.  Thanks for stopping by today!
