Lights, Camera, Action ~ Sketches In Thyme Challenge ~ WOW I'm the top winner over at Ooh-la-la Challenges!!!!

Hi everyone!!  It's time for another sketch challenge over at Sketches In Thyme.  And there is something very special about this weeks sketch..  Did I hear you ask why??  Well,  because it's designed by our very own Maven, Diana!!  Wow, and isn't it a beauty?!  You go girl!! 

I had so much fun working with this layout, and so will you... 
Here's what I came up with...  I am lovin' the grunge/distressed look of this layout of little GS Colten.  The photos were taken a couple of weeks ago.  His daddy just bought him that coonskin cap and he thought he was Mr. Hollywood..  I couldn't get him to stand still long enough for me to get any pictures..  These are about the only ones I got...  But they turned out precious!!

Here are a few close ups

I cut the star out of The Paper Loft paper and stamped it with the SU Flannel Plaid BG Stamp and then sponged the edges with black ink.  I don't know if you can tell but it's popped up on pop dots..  I layered the Bo Bunny Chunky Charm, SU Always Artichoke CS and then the cute photo of Colten. You can also see the film strip and the Bazzill cardstock strip, along with some of my distressing.

Here you can see those wonderful Creative Charms ~ Vintage Accents, Metal Frames which I added SU Always Artichoke CS which I stamped with the Itty Bitty Background Stamp in SU Always Artichoke Ink.  I cut the camera out of Bo Bunny and you can also see one of the Sticker Flourishes from EK Success, and of course some more distressing.

Here are the other EK Success Flourishes and you can see where I stamped the smaller circle with the SU Flannel Plaid Background Stamp in Black. 
And here is my journaling.. And more or the film strip and Bazzill cardstock strip.
This layout also qualifies for a few other challenges out there, which are:
Sketches In Thyme ~ Sketch by Diana

Pollycraft Mondy Challenge ~ Anything Goes
Crafty Emma's Store Challenge ~ Get Ahead, Get a Hat
