My Hero - male layout for Scrapbookit's September 2014 challenge

I fell in love with the challenge at Scrapbookit when it went up on 1st September. I wrote all the details down on a post it and finally got to it today (the 5th). Yay. I really wanted to spend some time crafting today and have made a couple of cards and now this layout. So pleased.

Here is the challenge...

Create a layout/a project that includes the following:
* Masculine theme
*The words 'My Hero' included in the title
* 4 patterned papers
* Washi tape
* Twine / Ribbon
* At least 1 handmade embellishment

I felt this challenge was so perfect for me. I'm always doing masculine layouts and I enjoy making embellies too. I was in Amanda's swaps for a while and so have quite a stash. It would be nice if that got going again but Amanda is a busy lady. Maybe one day.

I chose a photo of my boys with their Dad on Father's Day 2012. Perfect. They were wearing blue, black and white so I've used those colours but I wanted to add red to add some pops of colour.
I have all the criteria there. What do you think? I'm happy with it.
