2 page week and a blog hop winner!!

Ok this week is 2 pager week at Sketchsupport. This is the LO I made:

Supplies - Cardstock: Close To My Heart, Stampin UP!, Bazzill; Patterned paper: Scenic Route, We R Memory Keepers; Letters: American Crafts; Stamps: Close To My Heart, Stampin Up!, unknown; BBQ grill: Hobby Lobby; Brads: Making Memories, Stampin Up!; Thread

I stuck fairly close to the sketch as far as the papers go. I did change the picture sizes to fit what I had and wanted to make sure I didn't have to leave out any important ones. I added fireworks to the background paper using a stamp, (which is actually a flower stamp!) I had a few extra photos so I moved my title down the side instead of above the picture on the left.
I also popped several photos up along the layout to emphasize several of them.

For the banner, I hand stamped it and cut it out. Then I stuck them down and stitched them together. I also added several hand stamped and hand-cut firework bursts across the page in place of the embellishments shown on the sketch.

On the right side, I added a BBQ grill embellishment that I bought at a craft store. I added a few brads to it for more detail. Then I topped it off with a handmade hamburger. The tutorial to make it is from my friend, Pam Todd of splitcoaststampers. It is made out of cardstock, and punches.
To see what the rest of the team does with it go on over to sketchsupport.

Last but not least, the winner of a Sketches For Scrapbooking Idea Book is:
