Creative Scrappers Sketch #58

I thought this was a really fun sketch! Something I'm not used to doing is leaving a lot of space on my pages. Gosh, my books are already so big! But I like challenges because they make me think about different kinds of scrapbooking, and so often the result is something we may never have thought of!
I wanted to pull out some pictures of my Dad for this sketch. He passed away in 1993, so every once in awhile it's really nice to pull out a bundle of pictures that revolve around him that I have never scrapped.
I remember this day. Dad had decided to build a huge bonfire. and it was hot! So funny!! You'll see in the bottom picture Jerry was laying on the ground to toast a hot dog! I used all CTMH products for this layout. The paper is Back Country.

The round letters are It's a Guy Thing, and colored Dimensional Elements are matching to the Back Country paper. I've done a close up for you of the fire. I achieved that look by putting Liquid Glass on the fire. Isn't it great? It gives the fire dimension, and I made it crack a little to give that crackling look to the fire. Enjoy these pictures!!

I love your take on the sketch! Your elements are fabulous! Don't you feel so good getting out those older photos and getting them scrapped! I love the liquid glass over the fire on the photo, very nice touch!
Happy 4th of July, doll!
