This page will go in my album next to the Fourth of July layout, so I chose a paper with similar colors. However, this page relates a separate story so I did not go with the patriotic color scheme. Instead I pulled some Tim Holtz metal embellishments from my stash to cover the pre-printed buttons. I only had a few, but Robbie saved the day by finding additional items in his workbench stash.
I included a few more pieces from Robbie on the journal box. It's hard to see in the photo, but the embellishment on the right has the words "on" and "off" etched in it.
I used strips of cardstock to cover the pencil and apple border, and Robbie even had a mini wrench that I used as another embellishment near the title.
Daddy's been using that great ingenuity all my life, and today he celebrates his 66th birthday!
Happy Birthday Daddy!!
