Layout Three Album Contest Entry

This layout is a dedication to my father, the U.S. Military and to all the families whose loved ones did not come home to them.  This is page one of layout three.  Isn't my daddy a handsome man!  He looks like a hero, like Superman in this picture.
The scalloped circles are layered one flat on the layout then the next one popped up.  I added hand stitching and a pull out journal tag behind his picture.
Here is a close up of the dimension I added to the layout.  With embossing ink and clear embossing powder I stamped the cardstock with the large screen image from one of the background stamp set collections, then I distressed the cardstock by inking with chocolate and cocoa ink to fill in the non-embossed areas.
Here is another accident, the stitching is hemp wrapped around the brads, pretty cool.
This is page two of layout three.  I just love these pictures f my dad, they show off his amazing character, his sense of humor, intelligence and his loving side :)
Another accident happened here.....after cutting out some stars on with the AP Cricut cartridge, I took the remaining piece and cut out the negative.
Some more close ups.....

And another close up of the journaling tag.
