If It Makes You Happy

There is a new challenge up at The Paper Variety! Take a look at this fabulous sketch by Abby .

Here is my take on the sketch...
I am also entering this layout in the Bird is the Word "Remember" challenge (see my somewhat hidden journaling tag). I flipped the sketch on its side as my pictures seemed to fit better this way, but otherwise I think I followed the sketch pretty close, right down to using the star embellishments. Stars are always great for boy pages. I used My Mind's Eye Lime Twist papers and the font from the Boys Will Be Boys Cricut cartridge. My stars were inspired by DT member Holly's stars from the Black and White with a Kiss of Color challenge. I wanted to try them on a layout. I stamped the dots using a pencil eraser and various colors of distress ink.
Here are some closeups....
My little guy is 17 now but he used to sing this song by Sheryl Crow when he was this age. It always made me smile to listen to him. I can't believe I haven't scrapped these pics before now. Well, I hope I inspired you to join us in our latest challenge! Look what you could win from our sponsor, My Scraps & More!!!!

Kit includes:
6 double sided papers
3 die cut elements
mini word stickers
2 sticker alphabets
So what are you waiting for? Get scrapping!! I can't wait to see what you create.
