Scrabble at Lasting memories

Welcome back for another of Lasting Memories July  "Childhood Games" themed challenges. Each week the design team at LMCB has made a layout based on the photo/game to inspire you. This week we have the game Scrabble as our inspiration.  You can use anything from the photo below as inspiration.  All challenges this month are open for entries until July 29th. 
Head on over to Lasting Memories for a full list of challenges.
 I picked up these vintage titles from a neat little store (the Haven) in downtown Springfield, Or.  I thought I might do an altered art project with them and still might with the letters I didn't use.
The tiles are pretty chunky so I popped the photos up on two layers of heavy cardstock and foam squares so that the height distance wasn't so drastic.
I based my layout on Sketches in Thyme #207 sketch.  The overall feel is similar but I changed the orientation of the photos, title and banner.  I also used pearl dots instead of paint splatter.

I tried toning down the darkness of the brown paper by using a chalk marker to give it a faux wood grain look since the photos are of my kids climbing the Christmas trees.
Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you join us this week at lasting memories
