BBQ Layout

This layout was created for some pictures of a family barbecue.  I used the George and Basic Shapes cartridge for the large hexagon in the background and the Block Party Lite cartridge for all of the other die cuts.
To create this layout, I started with a hexagon patterned paper and added some barbecue themed paper on top and then added a large hexagon to break up all of the busy patterns.
I created a pennant style border at the top of the layout by punching out scalloped circles with a Martha Steward punch.  I punched some holes and strung them with Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine.
The large title was used as an anchor for the pennant at the top of the layout.  I added two yellow brads to the shirt of the "barbecuer".
 I also used some more twine to outline the smoke from the barbecue.
The "Fire up the grill" sentiment is from the Docerela "Summertime" Stamp Set and the "BBQ" and "enjoy" sentiments are from the Fiskars "Celebrate" stamp set.
