Our Little Traveling Man ~ Colten ~ The Pink Elephant Challenge ~ WOO HOO this layout made the Top 3 over at The Crazy Challenge!!! AND the Top 3 over at Charisma!!!! AND was featured (won) over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge!!!

Hello everyone!!  It's Thursday, and that means that it's time for another challenge over at The Pink Elephant!!  Woo Hoo!!!  This week it's a Color Combo  ~  We are using Black & White Photos with any color combo of papers!!!  Please be sure and check out what the other gals did!!! I had sooo much fun with this one...  As you can see I really layered this "baby" up!!  And the photo of little GS Colten is just adorable...  As you can see he has his coat and hat and is ready to "hit the road"  or maybe just go outside... lol  I also used the sketch from Stuck On U Sketches, which is a sketch from Becky Fleck of Pagemaps ~ This layout also qualifies for a few other challenges out there in blog land, which are:

Stuck On U Sketches ~ Sketch ~ instead of using 2 photos I decided to use just 1

Thanks so much for dropping by!!!
Have a wonderful day!

Fern, another stunner. Totally gorgeous layout, and the photo is beautiful.

I didn't get a chance to play at SOUS this week, we have a blog hop running, and what with regular work (nurse), and a workshop coming up on Sunday - I'm tuckered out LOL

My thoughts are with you with your Dad, my Dad is in Scotland, I don't know how I'd cope. You take care of you, and don't even think about us - God Bless My Friend xx
