Superman Layout!

It's been awhile since I have posted a layout so I thought today is the day.  It was super quick to come together as the cricut cuts were from a swap I received on the cricut message boards.  A great swap to participate in if you don't have the need to buy the whole cartridge just for the sake of a couple of cuts.

Anywho, my brother is a huge superman fan so this one is for him and his kids!!

Paper, ribbon and sticker was all from my stash.  Still have journalling that I need to complete and I actually just might have my brother do that for me!!
