Better Late Than Never! Fired Earth QP

I finally finished the LO from the "Fired Earth" kit by Vicki @ http://vicki20.blogspot.com/ Hop on over to her blog and check out the newest offering. She has a collab going with Mel, (no...not Mel the secretary! Mel the designer!) It's called Cafe del Mar and has a beach/music theme. It looks like it's gonna be lots of fun! Tell her I sent ya and be sure to leave some love if you download.
The frames that I used are not a part of this kit. You may notice the QP is a little different from my LO. I placed that big star in this position because there were dismembered looking legs showing under the table and I wanted to cover them up! The QP is really a much better balanced design, but those legs hanging out there were just strange looking! That's one of the reasons it took me so long to finish this LO, I really wanted to use the shot of the race board and couldn't figure out how to deal with the chopped off legs. Password is: race Oh, one other thing, the ribbon I used is from the Earth Tones kit, the beautiful ribbon in Fired Earth wouldn't work for the weaving, and I just had to do that with the wire netting.

Great page! It has a very classic boy appeal!

And moving the star t cover the dismembered legs is a great idea! I have fond flowers do a great job of covering less than girlish, um...wrinkles, big wrinkles n a shirt...on an otherwise great picture! LOL

Thanks for another great quick page!! :)

Ah, the memories of cubscouts with my son. I was a leader before he was old enough to be a scout, and continued long after he went on to be a full-fledged boyscout. He earned his Eagle Scout Award a year ago and I still proudly wear my "mother's pin". What a great program!

And your layout was fabulous! Thanks so very much for sharing this with us. You are great!
