Officially way too cute!! Colten at 14 months ~ The Pink Elephant Sketch!! ~ Woo Hoo this layout was chosen as a Top 3 over at Creative Inspirations!!!

Hi everyone, it's Thursday and do you know what that means??  A new scrap book challenge over at The Pink Elephant.....  Woo Hoo, I'm having so much fun working on these and you can too.  This week it's..... 
 All you have to do is take it and run with it...  Do whatever you want, but just make sure we can tell that you used the original sketch somehow!!!  Wow, Let's give Lori a BIG PINK hug for doing such a fantastic job!!  You Go Girl!! 
And here's my interpretation of her sketch. 


These are more sweet photo's of little GS Colten taken January when he was 14 months old.  They were taken at The Smile House in San Marcos, Texas.  She did a fantastic job with both of the grand babies... Sure was hard to choose just a few...  He was riding one of those "old" tricycles and so I just had to use the Heritage Cricut Cart. for some of the embellies.  Here's a list of the scrappy things I used:
SU Chocolate Chip CS and Ink
SU Very Vanilla CS
SU Bravo Burgundy CS and Ink
My Minds' Eye ~ Tan Polka Dot PP
Creative Imaginations ~ Christine Adolph PP ??  (that's all I see)
SU Ginormous Flowers Stamp Set ~ stamped on
SU Very Vanilla CS with
SU Bravo Burgundy Ink and then cut out and curled the edges of the flower under.  Added
Large Brown Button with little Colten's photo.
Font is cut with Silhouette in
Textured Dark Red CS which I also used for the
Decorative Corner, also cut with Silhouette, and
the tricycle cut with Heritage Cartridge ~ Cricut
Fence was cut with Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge ~ Cricut
Photo of Little Colten is layered over a piece of Handmade Paper from Prima
Prima Felt Ribbon ~ Brown
Creative Imaginations ~ Crimson Brads
Offray Lace Ribbon sprayed with
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist ~ Chocolate Covered Cherries
Marvy Scallop Circle Punch (The Pink One)
And here are a few other challenges it will qualify for:
Creative Inspirations ~ Punches or Die Cuts ~ I used both
Prairy Fairy Challenge ~ Flowers  - I got one handmade one in there!
Paper Popsicle ~ Cardstock
Scrap & Stamp ~ Ribbon and at least 1 stamp
Totally Gorjuss ~ Round and Round
Secret Crafter Saturday ~ Metal  (the brads have silver metal on them)
Charisma Cardz ~ 3D
Crafty Angels ~ Ripping and Tearing
Creative Belli Blog ~ Hole Punches
Meljen's Designs ~ Seeing Spots ~ Cream PP has tiny "spots" on it
Be sure and check out what the other gals did over at The Pink Elephant!!! 
We have some very talented ladies and you won't want to miss a thing!!!
Have a wonderful day, and thank you for dropping by!!
Please stop back by any time!!!
Hugs!!!
