Man of the House

The initial idea for this layout came about from the "That's Entertainment" challenge for Summerfest at The Scrapping Nook. We were given the option of getting inspiration from the works of either of two of the entertainers who passed away last week. I selected Farrah Fawcett and a movie she was in called "Man of the House". I initially wanted to do "The Brave Little Toaster Goes To Mars", but my toaster is definitely not brave nor has it ever been to Mars (I'm not even sure it has ever been out of Cambridge). So that is where the title came from.

The layout is based on a sketch by Allison Cope that was posted for Sketchy Saturday on the Scrapbook and Cards Today blog. I love Ally's sketches!!!!! One of Tara's challenges on her blog was to use a sketch from the SCT blog. She also challenged us to use red, white and blue on a layout. So I made red, white and blue prominent colours on my layout.

The patterned paper is from Three Bugs In A Rug Playtime line. Letters are American Crafts Thickers. I punched out three different sizes of stars then layered them together.
