Page Maps Challenge

This layout is for a challenge at Page Maps.
This sketch just really called out to me. It was the little flag on the left side of the picture. I just thought it'd be great for a golf layout.

I had a lot of fun with this one. Used some paint, my sewing machine, a punch, and a die. Gotta love that!

Supplies used:
Quick Kuts die
Studio Calico Limited Edition Stamp
Paper - Bazzill, Stampin Up, and 'Lisa's old stash'
Fiskars Punch
Americana Paints
American Crafts Dear Lizzy "Fantastic" Thickers

It's not always easy trying to keep a layout masculine... I struggle with it. This one is a little different for me, not as much 'stuff' on it. But different is ok sometimes!

New on the kid front... Matt was named employee of the month! How cool is that!

Off to try and finish up my layout for Project 12 that is due tomorrow. Wish me luck! 
Have a wonderful Monday!
