This is for the Gallery Inspiration Challenge, #7. I was given this layout to try to lift: http://www.scrapbook.com/galleries/446757/view/3649491/-1.html This is my take on it.
This is my DH & his older brother. Do not have the exact year, but probably somewhere around 1968. I wanted the layout to be bright and fun.
I used Echo Park's "A Walk In the Park" line for the paper and most of the embellishments. The balloons are a sticker from the set, but I cut their strings off & used Doodlebug's twine to tie onto the wagon. The wagon is a Cricut cut off of the Birthday Bash card. It had a bear in it, but I cut him off. I embossed the black tires and used hardware store washers with brads in the center for the hubs on the wheels. I used Glossy Accents on the wagon itself, and then embossed the tongue with Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing powder. I used more twine and Stickles on the kite string.
