Display Board

I've been using my Cricut Expressions
a lot lately
I wish we would've had something
 like this when I was in school
The displays I could've made!
As I  have said we are helping
a friend in his 
run for our city council
I made this board for his booth
at Frist Fridays and a local festival

I started by laying it all out to see how it looked
and to see how I could embellish it

As I was doing it I was updating and checking 
with Josh to get his input

I wasn't sure what I would
 put in the center of the side boards

The board changed a few times

The final layout b/4 gluing

In the center I used  the Twinkle Toes cartridge for the banners
that held names and to vote
the circle was cut from Plantin Schoolbook

I used photos 
of Josh out in the community
He volunteers a lot of his time
to different events

In Picasa I put text on the photos before printing

I cut out stars in metal contact paper
using Plantin Schoolbook
It really makes it stand out

The finished product
