Going For Gold

Thanks for joining me today while I share my newest layout created off the sketch from GrandDiva's Creative Corner.  It was originally a two page sketch, but I only used the left hand side.  I also used the the mood board from Creating with Paper & More. The mood board had a wood sign in it inspiring the wood grain paper I used for my background.  It also had a child blowing snow that looked like stars...hence the star accents I used around my page.  Lastly, the board had a deer in the left corner. My husband is an avid hunter so it inspired me to scrap about his recent achievement at work.
Last, but certainly not least, I went with Rochelle Spear's challenge of using twine or ribbon on your layout.  I had a ton of both these items in my stash, but never really use them so this was perfect for me. 
I also wanted to include the comments that were posted when his job put the achievement on their wall.  I didn't want to include four full size photos on the page, and I didn't want to shrink the photo of him down so I used some flip flaps from Close To My Heart to fit them all in.

Thanks for bearing with me for my super long post.  Hope you love the layout.
