I don't know what it is about boys and sticks, but my boys will take them everywhere. They're swords, rifles... you name it.
This page started with the photo and larger patterned papers running horizontally across the page. I embellished the tops of these elements with pennants, buttons and other random items. I LOVE the little "today is" tag from the Echo Park patterned paper. I could use a ton more of those.
I then added the title and the journaling to go vertically down the center.
I stuck the green grid washi to a piece of cardstock and then punched out the arrow shape and attached it to my page with the tiny attacher. I don't always take the time to think outside the box with my washi tape, but it's a great way to use up those wider rolls.
