Scrapbooking a rainbow

Another page I worked on in the month of May: a long-planned page about my son's love of the Rainbow Loom.

I'd planned many more photos, but I finally decided to cut it down to one representative photo of each part of the loom: the planning (looking at videos on Pinterest), the creating (sitting in Caribou Coffee with me and weaving), and wearing his creations (and looking like an indie rock star). Here's the page:

I used a sketch from Simple Scrapper that I took many liberties with. I changed the shaped to be circles and added photos in the general vicinity of the sketch.  I also loved using rainbow colored paper that I got with my March Studio Calico kit and stitching rainbow circles.

The trickiest part: die cutting the title on the background paper with my Cameo. I laid down the papers and photos where I wanted them, then attached it to the sticky mat, cut--then ruined the paper peeling it off. #&$@! I used a less sticky mat and it worked better. I still got some warping of the page in the corners, so to take the picture I added adhesive to the page and stuck it on the ottoman that I take my pictures on. Here's some details:

In case you are wondering, the M is a different set of Thickers. I ran out of the kind from the kit and delved into my stash for something similar.

Thank you for checking out my page! Rainbow Loom was such a big thing this year, I hope my son loves looking back on this page in the future.
