Cool Dude

The layout below shows my now 12 year old son when he was around 1 1/2 to 2 years of age.   Even at that young age he was already making us laugh.  Not only does he have on sunglasses, but he has them on upside down!
I used to challenges to complete this layout.  The first challenge was from How Much Is Too Much.  You had to use items in threes.  Like the three pattern papers and the three circles. Oh, and the picture had to be a humorous one.
The sketch for this layout came from Creative Scrappers, sketch 152.  They have some really great sketches you should try out.
Also, to create this kit I used the supplies in my kit for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog.  Each month on the 5th you are given a kit as an example. You copy this kit to create your own from you own stash.  This month the kit to counterfeit is A Little Birdie Told Me by Front Porch Kits.
I created my kit this month, but I have been a little slow about scrapping with it.  So be watching for several projects in the next few days made from my kit.

Thanks for stopping by,
