Best Buds- PPPRproject reveal

Happy humpty hump day fellow crafters..  Being that it's finally Wednesday, I get to share a layout with you that I created as my design team project for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon's project reveal..
I decided to create a GUY layout for today and I used the Best Buddie's cutting file..

Here is what I created:
Simple yet fun fun fun...
I think masculine layouts are the hardest to create and I'm so happy when I find fun cutting files to make it quick and fun.. 

How about some close ups and details:

 I decided to add lots of the stars from the Best Buddies file..
Here is one of them and I used some of my favorite Echo Park papers.. Which by the way, are a hybrid kit that I just printed with my home printer onto white cardstock :)

 Love love love this title phrase.. I used chalk on the edge of the green letters to have it pop out more..

My over sized one of the stars, stretched in the SIL software to fit the photo mat.. I then created the inner offset to the star creating the stitched look.. and the photo is of my little boys back about 14 years ago when we went to see the drag races.. 

and these cute little fellas.. They are from the Let it Snow file.. I just used the heads of the little boy's cutting file.. I'm telling ya, these files are amazing to use in different ways than the norm :)

Here are the other two stars I used.. plus the little white one is the cut out from the circle with the star cut out.. So there, ya get an extra star :)

for supplies used:

Silhouette Cameo
Silhouette Designer Edition
Canon home printer

White cardstock

Pretty Paper pretty ribbon cutting files:
