I am so happy to participate in PTI's May Blog Hop. This month the challenge was to show how we have been using felt in our card or scrapbook projects. The same day as I read about the challenge, I was scanning though some of Heather Nichols' blog posts that I had somehow overlooked during release week. I was excited to find a sketch and a sample scrapbook page she created. (I have posted a picture of her sketch and the link for you to check out http://pinefeather.typepad.com/pine_is_here/2010/05 get-to-the-point-more-fillable-frames-4.html) I decided to use her sketch and some of my PTI felt to scrap some old pictures of my two sons, and I mean really old. 1990, 1992 & 1993. My sons are now 26 and 28 and the best of friends, but that wasn't always the way it went. Most of the time they fought all the time. I decided to scrap three of the few pictures of them getting along and enjoying summer trips to Zion, Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. I had to juggle Heather's sketch a bit to make it fit a 12 x 12 layout and also the three pictures I wanted to use could not be cropped any smaller, but all in all I followed her sketch pretty closely. As Heather suggested, I stamped my own background paper using some of the stamps from last month and used the PTI felt for the title letters. PTI felt cuts so nicely with my sizzix dies in the cuttlebug. I think the felt adds a nice texture to the layout. I can't wait for PTI to come out with more colors.

What a fabulous trip that must have been. Great page.
Great page! The felt works great for the title.That is good to hear your boys are best friends now. Same thing happened with my sister and I.
Terrific layout! Great job!
Cool layout! Nice to hear that your boys are best friends now, I have a boy and 2 girls, the 2 girls fight once in a while, but most of the time, they were close like all sisters should be!
Thanks for stopping by to say hello, I just realized the best thing for the blog hop is I get to know more crafters.
Great page! Love the pp and the woodgrain. The felt letters are a wonderful addition!
Cathy, you really are the queen of PTI scrapbook pages!! These are great!
Great project! I love the outdoor theme.
Faboulous page! I love your background and the wood pattern just complements everything. I completely understand the "boy" thing. Ours are now 33 & 38!! Sometimes I wonder how they made it.
