Sketchy Thursday challenge

Happy Mothers Day everyone!!! My hubby was a good boy this year and got me 2 cartridges, opposites attract and sentimentals. Then he got me subway (my favorite) for lunch. Right now he is making new york strips on the grill before I go to work. All this for mothers day I cant wait until my birthday (may 11th).

So with my quiet time today I got to make a layout. I really like how this one came out. It is of myself and my son Tobin with some friends that we went to Disney World with last October. Tobin wasn't to sure about meeting Alice but he loosened up fairly quickly.

Sketch is from Sketchy Thursday

Flower patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye simply delightful pack

The other paper is from my stash

Chipboard letters are from making memories

A Childs Year cut the leaves

Flowers are what I am most proud of because I work at a store with fake flowers. At night we vacuum up all the petals on the floor. One day I picked them up instead of sweeping them up and my manager said I could have them. I took them apart, layered them and put a brad in them. Free flowers!!!!! Love it!

This layout also qualifies for:

Design Dollies Color Challenge: Pink, Cream, Orange (it is hard to tell in the pic but the biggest flower has a back layer that is burnt orange)
The Beary Sweet Design Team: flowers
She's a Sassy Lady: summery
