Great Escape ~ Colten -- Sketches In Thyme No. 20

Hi everyone!! It's Thursday and time for "Team A" to play over at Sketches In Thyme!!  This weeks sketch is from Scrapbooks etc., and you can do so much with this fun sketch!! 
I turned it 90 degrees and just used one photo... and so here's what I came up with...  This is little GS Colten taken a couple weeks ago..  You can't really tell, but he has his big sister's boots on and his hat, and he is going out to the shop where the "big" guys are...  He is such a cutie!!!

Here are some closeups...
Here you can see some of my distressing and I fussy cut "Escape".  You can also see the Tim Holtz - elegant flourishes

More distress work, flourishes and some of the prima flowers..

Here is my journaling which I printed from the computer on Creative Imaginations paper..

And this is my handsome little GS Colten!!  Such a lovable little guy!!

Here are a few challenges that this layout will qualify for:
Our Creative Corner ~ 3 different kinds of embellishments

Here is the list of scrappy things I used:

Am I correctly seeing a pretty stamped flourish over your journaling? It looks like it extends past the paper the journaling was printed on -- LOVE this idea!
