The Paper Variety's First Sketch Challenge

The Paper Variety (http://thepapervariety.blogspot.com/) is a fairly new blog designed by Abby & Suzanne, friends from Scrappin-n-Chattin (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/scrappin-n-chattin/). This is the sketch we were given to follow:
&  this is my take:
The journaling block has "just chillin'" typed in the top left corner and I wrote "Tyler was enjoyin' his macaroni-n-cheese!" The mushroom paper "Happy Place" was in Scrapbooks Etc Aug/Sept 2008 as an advertisement for Sassafras (http://www.sassafrasslass.com/). I'm not even sure they make the paper anymore, I searched on the site and it might not even be called Happy Place. I saw it and thought I'd use it on a LO! The green polka dotted scallop edge under the picture was on the Sassafras paper and I decide to cut it off to go under the pic! The leaves were from a punch. I used the little green polka dotted squares at the bottom to make the leaves and decided to use the scraps on my LO, too! The title is "Priceless" because this picture is priceless! The Sassafras paper was my inspiration, along with the sketch, to make the LO look as good as it is! I have so many different issues of Scrapbooks Etc and Memory Makers magazines that I don't use them enough for inspiration! There's a lot of sketches in them, too! I'd rather look online for inspiration! Oh, well! Please join in on the fun and try the challenge yourself! TFL!
