I can't believe how versatile this kit is! I made a light, breezy layout (Life Moments) with this same kit and you'd never know it! So different! I added some Dusty Attic chipboard that I felt resembled the boxing ring. I also aged the chipboard star and his last name with TH distress crackle paint and ink.
For those who do not know, Joe Louis was the Heavy Weight Champion of the World (boxing), still thought by many to be the best ever. My grandfather was director of recreation for the Navy, so got to do a lot of cool things, such as host Joe Louis in Hawaii. My Grandfather was not a small man by the day's standards, at 6 foot, he is still dwarfed by Mr. Louis!
