Rock N Bowl Layout

I found a new challenge blog (new to me that is) today.  It is Frosted Designs.  You can check them out here: http://www.frosteddesigns.blogspot.com/.  The challenge is to make a project without using any patterned papers.

I made a bowling layout from pictures of the first time Kaylee went bowling.  Most of you know that we are big bowlers in my family. :)  I used a reddish-orange paper for the background.  I then used white vinyl and the Nifty Fifties Font to cut the title "Rock N Bowl". (I used vinyl so it would be easy to place on the layout).  I also used the cartridge to cut the pin and ball.  I then outlined everything in black and added some retro bowling stickers that I found at Hobby Lobby.  Finally, I added some faux stitching with a white gel pen around the outer edge of the layout.
