Learning to Share ~ Stuck On U Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!!!   Can you believe that it's Friday, again!  I don't know about you, but to me it seems like the weeks are flying by.  I only have 6 more weeks left at work!!  :o)  But, I'm going to be available by phone and drive in if they need me for awhile, which I don't mind at all...  It's still going to give me a lot of freedom to do the things I want to do, like, playing grandma and crafting... and if I have time, a little spring cleaning!!  Anyways, nuff about that...  Since it's Friday, it's time for another wonderful sketch challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches, and this time it's from PageMaps..
I pretty much followed the original sketch, just "flipped" it...  The photos I used were taken last December here at our place.  It was a gorgeous day and DS Levi, and DGS Colten were playing with the scooter...  Levi was pushing Colten around for awhile and then he decided to take it on a spin down the gravel road...  At first Colten was pushing him with one hand while he was holding the bat, and as Levi went faster, Colten couldn't stay up so he started waving the bat..  It was too cute...  I guess Colten thought daddy was getting a longer turn than he got, and was a little upset with him for not sharing!!!  LOL
Here are a few close ups
Here you can see some distressing, Cuttlebug Floral Borders, Letters from QuicKutz, Hardware with SU ribbon..

I fussy cut the little birds from Jenni Bowlin-Sparrow pp and then chalked them....


Here's my journaling on the Sizzix Bigz Top Note Die Cut...


Here you can see the Bazzill Die Cut strip run thru the Crimper and the SU Ribbon, along with the cute little insert photo of Colten..

Here are a few other challenges that this layout will qualify for...
A Spoon Full of Sugar ~ Anything but a card
C.R.A.F.T. ~ Not a card
Crafts and Me Challenge ~ Time to spread your wings
Creative Inspirations ~ Distressing

Here is the list of scrappy things I used on this layout..
SU Basic Black CS
Colorbok CS
Jenni Bowlin ~ Sparrow
Cuttlebug ~ Floral Borders
QuicKutz Cookie Cutter Espresso Alphabet Dies
