A is for America Layout

Hello!  How is everyone doing today?  I have had a great week.  Thursday night, Steven (my 8 year old son) had a play at school.  He was so nervous, you see he was Abraham Lincoln.  He did a fine job.  I am so proud of his performance.  The entire cast did a great job.  I have made a layout for this occasion.  I used my Cricut to create the title and the silhoutte of Lincoln.  I made a pocket for a disc of the play that I recorded.  I also made two journaling tags.  One of the tags, I had my son write his lines from the play.  The second tag is where I will do my journaling.
Below you can see the envelope for the DVD tucked beneath the photo matting.  I may even tuck my journaling tag in the envelope.
You can see below the journaling tag my son wrote his lines from the play on.   I also had made a rosette from red and white striped ribbon and my son said "it looks a little girlie" so I made another rosette from burlap and layered it over the ribbon rosette.
I hope you enjoyed this layout.  I really came together pretty fast and most of all my son loves it.  Thanks for stopping by and if you liked this and my other work please become a follower.  Once again, thanks for taking a look.
